Available with a NAFCU member log-in, the updated consolidated text can be located on NAFCU’s mortgage resources webpage here and serves as a great research tool.

CFPB Issues Guiding Principles for Faster Payment Networks. Last week, the CFPB outlined guiding principles for faster payment networks. In the CFPB’s guidelines, it states:
“Improvement in payment systems can aid many users — and consumers, in particular — if accompanied by more robust and timely information about payments and receipt of funds. When integrated with systems such as mobile banking and other channels by which consumers may obtain real time information about their account balances, consumers could know more definitively when they do and do not have funds with which to conduct transactions. At best, faster payments could enable faster, safer, and more accessible commerce.”
It should be noted that other federal agencies, including the Federal Reserve, have been engaged in initiatives to improve payment systems as well. NAFCU has been very involved in these efforts and will continue to gather input on how to improve the U.S. payments system.
