Everyone recognizes the special role our military personnel plays in our nation’s life and we all strive to treat active duty and veterans with the respect they deserve. Well, respect isn’t all they are entitled to receive today. The Department of Defense has issued a final rule amending the implementing regulations of the Military Lending Act of 2006. The final rule expands specific protections provided to service members and their families under the MLA and addresses a wider range of credit products than the previous regulation. Join veteran credit union attorney David Reed as he highlights the changes and reviews the details of this important area of lending compliance so that your credit union is prepared.
This session will cover:
