2017 HMDA Process Changes for All HMDA Reporters

2017 HMDA Process Changes for All HMDA Reporters - 11/22/16 01:04 PM

In a nutshell, to make sure everyone is aware of this. I have done webinars on this for BOL and my own clients, and I have blogged about it - but I know there will be others who are not aware! So, in a nutshell:

1. The FFIEC data submission software will no longer be used after the 2016 HMDA submissions
2. The new platform will be online and files will be uploaded
3. Error corrections will not be made in the new online platform - correct in your spreadsheet or vendor software
4. The new platform will not be available until summer 2017
5. A temporary edit tool will be provided (look for it in January) for those who want to run edits on quarterly LAR without vendor software
6. All HMDA reporters must register, using vendor software - keep an eye out for announcements re registration
7. Edit process changes: Pre-submission, all edits including the macro edits (that now occur post-submission) must be cleared. Allow time for this. There will be no post-submission email with macro edits.
8. Errors must be corrected offline and a new corrected upload processed
9. An authorized person must certify (online) to the accuracy and completeness of the submission - last pre-submission step.
10. Resubmissions follow same process as original
11. Online submission will be only submission method - no paper, no mailing of disks or cds, no emailing of encryped files by financial institution or by vendor software

While it appears Kathleen isn't going to promote her webinars, I will. She is one of the most knowledgeable people on HMDA, new and old. She's breaking down some of these complicated rules into digestible chunks - like eating an elephant, one bite at a time.

Here is a link to her January webinar on HMDA - https://www.bankersonline.com/webinars/hmda0117

And here is a "what you need to know about HMDA changes" that she just finished and its available now.

Thanks, Andy. I should have mentioned those webinars. I seem to be single focused when discussing a topic!

Thanks. I am blushing.

I particularly want those using vendor solutions to realize that this affects them too!
