ABA Supports Changes to CFPB's Prepaid Card Rule

ABA provided feedback on the CFPB’s proposed changes to its final rule on prepaid products. The proposal includes several revisions to error resolution requirements and limited liability provisions of the prepaid rule, which is set to take effect on April 1, 2018.

ABA generally supported the changes and recommended that the CFPB delete certain cards from its definition of “prepaid accounts,” such as jury duty cards that have no fees, cannot be registered and are not marketed to the general public. ABA also recommended that the bureau delete certain language that would require credit card companies to treat prepaid accounts offered by a related company as credit cards for purposes of merchant disputes and error resolution. Finally, the association noted that the April 2018 compliance deadline may no longer be sufficient, and urged the bureau to extend the deadline to Oct. 1, 2018.
