Title: Truth in Savings (Regulation DD) 12 CFR 1030.
OMB Number: 3170-0004.
Abstract: Federal agencies use the records to ascertain whether accurate and complete disclosures of depository accounts have been provided to consumers. This information also provides the primary evidence of law violations in Truth in Savings (TISA) enforcement actions brought by the CFPB and other agencies. Without the Regulation DD recordkeeping requirement, the agencies' abilities to enforce TISA would be significantly impaired. Consumers rely on the disclosures required by TISA and Regulation DD to facilitate informed decision making regarding deposit accounts offered at depository institutions. Without this information, consumers would be severely hindered in their ability to assess the true costs and terms of the deposit accounts offered. These disclosures and provisions are necessary for the enforcement agencies to enforce TISA and Regulation DD.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Businesses or other for profits.
Estimated Number of Responses: 378,960.
Estimated Time per Response: 4 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 23,000.
Dated: April 6, 2012.
Chief Information Officer, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.
