CFPB Seeks Comment on Proposed Changes to Prepaid Rule

On June 15, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), announced that it is seeking comments on proposed updates to its prepaid rule, “Prepaid Accounts under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (Regulation E) and the Truth In Lending Act (Regulation Z)” (Prepaid Rule). The Prepaid Rule incorporates prepaid accounts under Regulations E and Z and was originally published in the Federal Register on November 22, 2016 (81 FR 83934) and amended on April 25, 2017 (82 FR 18975).

The CFPB’s proposal requests comment on potential modifications to several aspects of the Prepaid Rule, including error resolution and limitations on liability for prepaid accounts where the financial institution has not completed its consumer identification and verification process; application of the rule’s credit-related provisions to digital wallets that are capable of storing funds; certain other clarifications and minor adjustments; and two issues relating to the effective date of the rule.
