2. Title: Account Based Disclosures in Connection With Federal
Reserve Regulations E, CC, and DD.
OMB Number: 3064-0084.
Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Affected Public: State chartered banks that are not members of the
Federal Reserve System.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,300.
Total Annual Burden: 920,589 hours.
General Description of Collection: This FDIC information collection
provides for the application of Regulations E (Electronic Fund
Transfers), CC (Availability of Funds), and DD (Truth in Savings) to
State nonmember banks. Regulations E, CC, and DD are issued by the
Federal Reserve Board of Governors (FRB) to ensure, among other things,
that consumers are provided adequate disclosures regarding accounts,
including electronic fund transfer services, availability of funds, and
fees and annual percentage yield for deposit accounts. Generally, the
Regulation E disclosures are designed to ensure consumers receive
adequate disclosure of basic terms, costs, and rights relating to
electronic fund transfer (EFT) services provided to them so that they
can make informed decisions. Institutions offering EFT services must
disclose to consumers certain information, including: initial and
updated EFT terms, transaction information, the consumer's potential
liability for unauthorized transfers, and error resolution rights and
Like Regulation E, Regulation CC has consumer protection disclosure
requirements. Specifically, Regulation CC requires depository
institutions to make funds deposited in transaction accounts available
within specified time periods, disclose their availability policies to
customers, and begin accruing interest on such deposits promptly. The
disclosures are intended to alert customers that their ability to use
deposited funds may be delayed, prevent unintentional (and costly)
overdrafts, and allow customers to compare the policies of different
institutions before deciding at which institution to deposit funds.
Depository institutions must also provide an awareness disclosure
regarding substitute checks. The regulation also requires notice to the
depositary bank and to a customer of nonpayment of a check.
Regulation DD also has similar consumer protection disclosure
requirements that are intended to assist consumers in comparing deposit
accounts offered by institutions, principally through the disclosure of
fees, the annual percentage yield, and other account terms. Regulation
DD requires depository institutions to disclose yields, fees, and other
terms concerning deposit accounts to consumers at account opening, upon
request, and when changes in terms occur. Depository institutions that
provide periodic statements are required to include information about
fees imposed, interest earned, and the annual percentage yield (APY)
earned during those statement periods. It also contains rules about
advertising deposit accounts.
Although the FRB regulations require institutions to retain
evidence of compliance with the disclosure requirements, the
regulations do not specify the types of records that must be retained.
3. Title: Prompt Corrective Action.
OMB Number: 3064-0115.
Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Affected Public: All insured depository institutions.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 19.
Estimated Time per Response: 4 hours.
Total Annual Burden: 76 hours.
General Description of Collection: The Prompt Corrective Action
provisions in Section 38 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12
U.S.C. 1831o) permits and, in some cases requires, the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and other federal banking agencies to take
certain supervisory actions when FDIC-insured institutions fall within
one of five capital categories. They also restrict or prohibit certain
activities and require the submission of a capital restoration plan
when an insured institution becomes undercapitalized.
