NCUA Extends COVID-19 Regulatory Relief

Authored By: Lewis Wood on 12/22/2021

The NCUA board has unanimously approved, by notation vote, an extension of the effective date of its temporary final rule, which modified certain regulatory requirements to help ensure that federally insured credit unions remain operational and can address economic conditions caused by the COVID–19 pandemic.  

The temporary final rule issued by the board in April 2020 raised the maximum aggregate amount of loan participations that a federally insured credit union may purchase from a single originating lender to the greater of $5,000,000 or 200% of the credit union’s net worth. The rule also temporarily suspended certain limitations on the eligible obligations that a federal credit union may purchase and hold. 

In addition, given physical distancing practices necessitated by the COVID–19 pandemic, NCUA reminded the rule suspended the required timeframes for the occupancy or disposition of properties not being used for federal credit union business or that have been abandoned. 

These temporary modifications will remain effective until Dec. 31, 2022, NCUA said.
