SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposal to renew the following currently-approved collections of information:

1. Title: Application for Consent to Exercise Trust Powers.

OMB Number: 3064-0025.

Form Number: FDIC 6200/09.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks wishing to exercise trust powers.

Annual Number of Respondents: 12.

Burden Estimate

Estimated number of responsesHours per responseFrequency of responseEstimated burden
Eligible depository institutions88On Occasion64
Not-eligible depository institutions424On Occasion96
Totals12160

General Description of Collection: FDIC regulations (12 CFR 333.2) prohibit any insured State nonmember bank from changing the general character of its business without the prior written consent of the FDIC. The exercise of trust powers by a bank is usually considered to be a change in the general character of a bank's business if the bank did not exercise those powers previously. Therefore, unless a bank is currently exercising trust powers, it must file a formal application to obtain the FDIC's written consent to exercise trust powers. State banking authorities, not the FDIC, grant trust powers to their banks. The FDIC merely consents to the exercise of such powers. Applicants use form FDIC 6200/09 to obtain FDIC's consent.

2. Title: Certified Statement for Quarterly Deposit Insurance Assessment.

OMB Number: 3064-0057.

Affected Public: FDIC-insured depository institutions.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 6,081.

Frequency of Response: Quarterly.

Estimated Annual Burden Hours per Response: 20 minutes.

Total Estimated Annual Burden: 8,108 hours.

General Description of Collection: The FDIC collects deposit insurance assessments on a quarterly basis. Each assessment is based on the institution's quarterly report of condition for the prior calendar quarter. The FDIC collects the quarterly payments by means of direct debits through the Automated Clearing House network. The collection dates for the first period of any given year (January through June) are June 30 and September 30 of the current year. The collection dates for the second period (July through December) are December 30 of the current year and March 30 of the following year. The information collection consists of recordkeeping associated with reviews by officials of the insured institutions to confirm that the assessment data are accurate and, in cases of inaccuracy, submission of corrected data.

The FDIC is requesting OMB to approve the change of the name of the collection from Certified Statement for Semiannual Deposit Insurance Assessment to Quarterly Certified Statement Invoice for Deposit Insurance Assessment to reflect the fact that deposit insurance assessment invoices are issued on a quarterly as opposed to a semiannual basis.

3. Title: Insurance Products Consumer Protections.

OMB Number: 3064-0140.Start Printed Page 65644

Affected Public: Insured State nonmember banks and savings associations that sell insurance products; persons who sell insurance products in or on behalf of insured State nonmember banks and savings associations.

Total26240

General Description: In August, 2010, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB) the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and the FDIC, issued guidance focusing on the need to provide adequate information to consumers about reverse mortgage products; to provide qualified independent counseling to consumers considering these products; and to avoid potential conflicts of interest. The guidance also addressed related policies, procedures, internal controls, and third party risk management. Prior to the effective date of the final guidance, the Agencies obtained PRA approval from OMB for the information collection requirements contained therein. These information collection requirements included implementation of policies and procedures, training, and program maintenance. The requirements are outlined below:

  • Institutions offering reverse mortgages should have written policies and procedures that prohibit the practice of directing a consumer to a particular counseling agency or contacting a counselor on the consumer's behalf.
  • Policies should be clear so that originators do not have an inappropriate incentive to sell other products that appear linked to the granting of a mortgage.
  • Legal and compliance reviews should include oversight of compensation programs so that lending personnel are not improperly encouraged to direct consumers to particular products.
  • Training should be designed so that relevant lending personnel are able to convey information to consumers about product terms and risks in a timely, accurate, and balanced manner.

Request for Comment

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the collections of information, including the validity of the methodology and 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 collections of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.
