Sasha Leonhardt, of Buckley LLP, will discuss regulatory and enforcement trends arising from the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) and the Military Lending Act (MLA), the two primary laws specifically aimed at protecting servicemembers’ financial health.  Under both laws there has been a continued pattern of enforcement actions and private litigation, and under the MLA, 2020 particularly witnessed an increase in enforcement actions and litigation testing the bounds of the Department of Defense’s revised MLA rule.  Because these laws can involve significant monetary penalties and substantial reputational exposure for lenders, this is an area where every credit union should understand the law.  Webinar attendees will leave with a greater understanding of the SCRA’s and MLA’s requirements, as well as an awareness of key areas where credit unions can strengthen protections for servicemembers.  This webinar will offer important insights for legal, compliance and servicing staff within your credit union.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand the common—and not so common—ways the SCRA and MLA affect your credit union.
  • Anticipate issues arising from servicemember’s accounts before they become pain points.
  • Review real-world scenarios regarding SCRA and MLA compliance.
