Federal Reserve Announces Regulation D Amendment
Today, the Federal Reserve Board announced an Interim Final Rule amending Regulation D, removing the six-per-month limit on transfers from savings accounts.
The interim final rule allows credit unions and other depository institutions to immediately suspend enforcement of the six-transfer limit and allow members to make an unlimited number of transfers and withdrawals from their savings accounts at a time when financial transactions without going to a branch or ATM are necessary.
The announcement comes on the heels of the efforts of CUNA and state leagues encouraging the Federal Reserve to eliminate the six-transfer restriction in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
There will be a 60-day comment period on the interim final rule upon date of publication in the Federal Register. The Federal Reserve’s press release can be found here.
