Effective June 26, 2020, the FDIC adopted a Final Rule to mitigate the effect on deposit insurance assessments resulting from an insured institution’s participation in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the Paycheck Protection Program Liquidity Facility (PPPLF), and the Money Market Mutual Fund Liquidity Facility (MMLF). The regulation provides adjustments to remove the effects of participating in PPP, PPPLF, and MMLF on the assessment rate calculation, and an offset to assessments attributable to the MMLF and PPP assessment base increases. New Report of Condition and Income (Call Report) items have been added to report PPP, PPPLF, and MMLF amounts necessary to implement the regulation changes.
Adjustment to the Risk Based Assessment Computation
The regulation: 1) removes the effect of participation in the PPP and PPPLF on various risk measures used to calculate an Insured Depository Institution’s (IDI's) assessment rate, 2) removes the effect of participation in the PPPLF and MMLF programs on certain adjustments to an IDI’s assessment rate, and 3) removes the effect of participation in the PPPLF and MMLF programs when classifying IDIs as small, large, or highly complex for assessment purposes.
The regulation also provides an offset to an IDI's assessment for the increase to its assessment base attributable to participation in the MMLF and PPP. To view the assessment offset computation, see Sample Invoices.
