OMB Number: 3064-0084.
Affected Public: Insured financial institutions.
Estimated Annual Burden Hours:
Regulation E: 2,664,895 hours.

General Description of Collection: The FDIC's OMB-approved collection provides for the application of the information collection requirements of three FRB rules to state nonmember banks. The three rules are:
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. 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.Start Printed Page 69117
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.
