FIL-56-2020 - PDF (PDF Help)


On May 12, 2020, the FDIC Board of Directors authorized publication of a notice of proposed rulemaking that would mitigate the deposit insurance assessment effects of participating in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) established by the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Paycheck Protection Program Lending Facility (PPPLF) and Money Market Mutual Fund Liquidity Facility (MMLF) established by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. To provide certainty to insured depository institutions (IDIs) regarding the assessment effects of participating in these programs, the FDIC is proposing an effective date by June 30, 2020, and an application date of April 1, 2020, which would ensure that the changes are applied to assessments starting in the second quarter of 2020. Comments on the proposed rule will be accepted for seven days after publication in the Federal Register.

Statement of Applicability: This proposal is applicable to all FDIC-insured institutions.
