One of my co-workers mentioned he heard that the Dodd Frank Act would be eliminating Single Premium Credit Insurance (credit life, disability, etc.). He did not have any documentation on this however, and wanted me to verify this for him. I had scoured all the Dodd Frank materials I have and can not find any reference to this. Has anyone heard of this?

It's been awhile since I looked at this part of DF, but if memory serves, it's not that it is eliminated, but I thought that it could no longer be financed.

Don't quote me though... I would need to confirm.

Confirmed:

Creditors will no longer be able to finance (directly or indirectly) single premium credit insurance for any residential mortgage or open-end credit plan secured by the the consumer's principle dwelling.

That said, they rule hasn't been written yet, so no need to change anything in the short term.

Do we know a compliance date for this yet? I thought I understood it to be effective 18 months after the transfer date which is July 21, 2011, however we received a notice from the credit life insurance company stating that it will be prohibited effective July 21, 2011. Does anyone have any information on this?

So as of today, there is still no cut-off date for being able to finance single premium insurance? As far as I can find, the rules do not appear to be written yet. Correct?

Has this been finalized? Received a doc today that made it sound like it was already a done deal. I don't remember seeing anything yet.

Consider the source of the document. Who's it from?

No. It's one of a host of things on the Bureau's plate with a deadline for a final rule of January 21, 2013.

Well, it's part of MRAPLA, and the Bureau has said it intends to get proposed rules out by this summer (presumably so it can just barely squeak the final rule in by 1/21/13). Most of MRAPLA becomes effective without a final rule in place if the final rules aren't completed by 1/21/13.

OK - I'm in acronym overload. What does MRAPLA stand for?

Management had asked if a proposed rule had been published and so I just wanted to make sure before I told them "no." I'm typically notified by email of proposed rules, but I couldn't find anything on this one.....just wanted to make sure I haven't missed something.

We would have included a notice of any such proposal in our Top Stories and morning Compliance Briefing. I can assure you that the proposal hasn't seen the light of day yet.

If you need a bit more comfort, you can always scrutinize the Bureau's Notice and Comment webpage at http://www.consumerfinance.gov/notice-and-comment/

I have not seen anything about this in any of the proposals. Does that mean it's effective 1/21/13 as written in DFA? Or do we think that the CFPB will be releasing something on this shortly?

I believe this is part of the Lender Compensation Revisions to Reg Z that they are hoping to finalize by 1/21/13.
