Webinar - Countdown to New Debt Collection Rules: Deadline November 30, 2021

Start Date: 11/8/2021 9:00 AM MST
End Date: 11/8/2021 10:30 AM MST

United States 

The CFPB has confirmed that the two final rules issued under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) will become effective on November 30, 2021.  These new rules affect both financial institutions and their third-party debt collectors.  The first rule focuses on debt collection communications (i.e., phone, voicemail, email, texts, and social media).  It increases consumers’ control over how often and by what means a collector can communicate with them. 
The second rule clarifies the disclosures that must be provided to consumers at the beginning of collection communications.  It also addresses the specific steps that must be taken to disclose the existence of a debt to the consumer before reporting it to a credit reporting agency.  In addition, it prohibits collectors from threatening to sue on time-barred debt.  This webinar will explain the compliance implications to your systems and procedures so you can prepare before the November 30 deadline.
This informative session will benefit loan officers at all levels, loan operations personnel, credit administration staff, collection personnel, compliance officers, attorneys, managers, and others involved in the collection process
