InfoSight Highlight: Changes to NCUA Field of Membership Rules
Friday, July 14, 2017 7:00 AM

NCUA recently issued a final rule which modernizes existing FOM definitions for federal credit unions. This final rule was approved Oct. 27, 2016, at an open board meeting and was published to the Federal Register on Dec. 7, 2016. The final rule became effective on Feb. 6, 2017.

The final rule amends NCUA’s FOM rules to allow:

  • greater flexibility for community charters and select employee group-based credit unions,
  • increased opportunities to serve underserved areas,
  • expansion of population limits,
  • a new, streamlined application process,
  • expansion of persons eligible for membership, and more.

These changes ultimately help to improve access for consumers and allow credit unions to better serve their communities.
