Title of Collection: Truth in Savings (Regulation DD) 12 CFR Part 1030.
OMB Control Number: 3170-0004.
Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits (insured depository institutions with total assets of more than $10 billion and their depository affiliates).Start Printed Page 46326
Estimated Number of Respondents: 142.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 23,000.
Abstract: The Truth in Savings Act (TISA), 12 U.S.C. 4301 et seq. was enacted to enhance economic stability, improve competition between depository institutions, and strengthen consumer ability to make informed decisions regarding deposit accounts by requiring uniformity in the disclosure of interest rates and fees. 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. Federal agencies and private litigants 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 TISA enforcement actions brought by the CFPB. Without the Regulation DD recordkeeping requirement, the CFPB's ability to enforce TISA would be significantly impaired.
Request for Comments: The Bureau issued a 60-day Federal Register notice on May 14, 2013 (78 FR 28204). Comments were solicited and continue to be invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau's estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record.
