General description of report: This information collection is mandatory pursuant section 269 of Truth in Savings Act (TISA) (12 U.S.C. 4308), which authorizes the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to issue regulations to carry out the provisions of the act. The Board's imposition of the disclosure requirements on Federal Reserve supervised institutions is authorized by the Dodd-Frank amendments to TISA (12 U.S.C. 4309), and the provisions of Regulation DD (12 CFR 1030.1(a), 1030.2(j)). An institution's disclosure obligations under Regulation DD are mandatory. The Federal Reserve does not collect any information; therefore, no issue of confidentiality arises.

Abstract: TISA was contained in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991. The purpose of TISA and its implementing regulation is to assist consumers in comparing deposit accounts offered by institutions, principally through the disclosure of fees, the annual percentage yield (APY), and other account terms. TISA requires depository institutions to disclose key terms for deposit accounts at account opening, upon request, when changes in terms occur, and in periodic statements. It also includes rules about advertising for deposit accounts. TISA does not provide exemptions from compliance for small institutions.

On July 21, 2011, rulemaking authority for TISA was transferred from the Board to the CFPB under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act). In December 2011, the CFPB published an interim final rule establishing its own Regulation DD to implement TISA at 12 CFR part 1030 that substantially duplicated the Board's Regulation DD. The Board repealed its version of Regulation DD (12 CFR part 230) effective June 30, 2014.

Current Actions: On December 11, 2014, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (79 FR 73583) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Disclosure Requirements in Connection with Regulation DD. The comment period for this notice expired on February 9, 2015. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments.
