Are You In Compliance with CFPB’s Final Rule Prohibiting Financing of Credit Insurance & Debt Protection with Mortgages?

By ABIA Outside Counsel Chrys Lemon and Adam Maarec, McIntyre & Lemon, PLLC

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act included a provision that prohibits the financing of credit insurance premiums and debt protection product fees. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued rules implementing the ban in connection with its loan originator compensation rule, but after the industry raised interpretive questions related to the rule’s potential application to monthly-paid products, the Bureau re-proposed the rule. The ABIA commented on the CFPB’s second proposed rule in a joint letter with seven other trade associations.
