Military Lending Act Essentials
On July 22, 2015 the Department of Defense (DOD) published a 54-page final rule that amends its existing Part 232, which implements the Military Lending Act (MLA).
The law and regulation provide various protections for servicemembers and their families.
The DOD amended its regulation primarily for the purpose of extending the protections of the MLA to a broader range of closed-end and open-end credit products.
The revised rule was effective October 1, 2015. Compliance was mandatory, for the most part, on October 3, 2016.
This information packed program helps participants assure they are prepared for the first regulatory review of MLA compliance. Participants receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long after the program is completed.
