CUNA analysis New FTC ceiling on disclosure charge
WASHINGTON (1/7/08)—The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has issued a final rule analysis of the Federal Trade Commission notice regarding charges permitted under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). FCRA allows a credit bureau to charge a reasonable fee for making a disclosure to a consumer, up to a certain amount. Under the new FTC rule, the maximum amount will be increased from $10.00 to $10.50. The fee was originally set at $8 and is required to be adjusted periodically based on the Consumer Price Index. Adjustments are rounded to the nearest fifty cents. The higher ceiling went into effect on Jan. 1. However, CUNA notes, this fee will not apply to consumers’ requests for a free annual credit report under the provisions of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) of 2003.
