NCUA regulators urge fin. inst. to aid oil spill victims
WASHINGTON (7/15/10)—Credit unions should work with their members and “consider measures to assist creditworthy borrowers” that have been affected by the environmental disaster caused by the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) said on Wednesday. The NCUA joined banking and thrift regulators, including the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., in stating their commitment to working with the financial services industry “to respond to issues that arise in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill and to minimize disruption and the burden on banks and credit unions in affected areas.” Those agencies have directed their examiners to “consider the unusual circumstances of banks and credit unions in affected areas in determining the appropriate supervisory response to safety-and-soundness issues.” For the full release, use the resource link.
