MADISON, Wis. (6/23/10)--Within the next week, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is offering three audio conferences, including one this Thursday on the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing (SAFE) Act. Sessions next week will cover individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and identity theft. CUNA will offer an audio Thursday on the SAFE Act and other compliance issues for credit unions from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. CT. The audio will feature Regina Metz, attorney with the National Credit Union Administration and CUNA staff. Topics to be discussed include:
* Regulation Z open-end credit rules that go into effect July 1; * Regulation E overdraft rules for ATM and one-time debit card transactions, effective July 1; * Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) accuracy and direct dispute rule, effective July 1; and * The Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosures Act’s credit card and gift rules, which go into effect Aug. 22.
Two back-to-back audios also will be available on Tuesday--“IRA: Rollovers and Transfers,” from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. CT and “Identity Theft--How to Thwart Criminals,” from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. CT. The IRA audio will feature John Baptista Jr., who has more than 30 years of experience in the financial industry. With the audio, attendees will understand what rollovers are, analyze what questions must be asked and answered on transfers and rollovers, review when it is best to do a transfer versus rollover, and learn who can deliver a transfer letter. The identity theft audio will feature Robert Siciliano, an expert on personal security and identity theft. Audio attendees will develop a heightened awareness of scams, understand what ATM skimming is and how to detect it, learn how criminals are circumventing existing systems to commit fraud, and create programming to partner with credit union members and become part of the solution.
