The CFPB delayed the effective date of its Prepaid Accounts Rule six months, to April 1, 2018, but now the time is short for banks to address their implementation of the rule’s requirements. There are significant changes to Regulations E (and some to Regulation Z) to provide consumer protections to millions of prepaid account holders. Banks (and others) that issue prepaid cards or hold consumer prepaid accounts must be ready to provide new disclosures, account statements (or online transaction history access), error resolution procedures, and more that the new rule requires.
