CFPB prepaid rule delay

On March 9, 2017, the CFPB released a proposal to delay the effective date of its final rule govern prepaid accounts by six months. This proposal will push the effective date back from October 1, 2017 to April 1, 2018.

Through ongoing discussions with companies in the prepaid industry, CFPB staff learned that some industry participants have concerns about achieving compliance with the new requirements while also ensuring continued availability of their prepaid products and with minimal disruption to consumers by the October 1, 2017 deadline.
