The new Military Lending Act (MLA) rules take effect October 3, 2016. The new rules vastly expand the number and types of products that are subject to the MLA. Credit unions that weren't covered before must now develop rigorous MLA compliance policies and procedures—often from scratch and with little official guidance. Additionally, the new rules  expand the substantive protections under the MLA, establish a new methodology to calculate the Military APR ("MAPR"), and provide new tools to determine whether a potential consumer is a covered borrower under the MLA. Attend this webcast to learn best practices for complying with the new MLA rules and examine these changes in detail. This online training will help you identify where your credit union may have MLA risk and anticipate regulatory expectations.
