TDR Comeback: Qualification Under CECL & End of CARES Act
Stephen J.M. Schiltz, CLA
There was a reprieve from troubled debt restructurings (TDRs) during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and interagency guidance that allowed financial institutions to exclude certain loan modifications from TDR reporting. However, Section 4013 of the CARES Act ended on January 1, 2022, and the revised interagency guidance only allows for temporary modifications (not more than six months) for borrowers affected by COVID-19. TDRs will be making a comeback with the end of regulatory relief and another recession looming on the horizon. In addition, TDR accounting and disclosures will be changing with the adoption of the Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) methodology. This session will guide you through the process of identifying TDRs, calculating expected reserves, compiling financial disclosures, and implementing best-practice recommendations along the way. Bring your questions!

Lessons Learned from the FDCPA Collection Rule Changes
Elizabeth Fast, Spencer Fane LLP
Over a year ago, the CFPB implemented two rounds of major changes to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act which affected all financial institutions and their third-party debt collectors. These changes covered the consumer’s control over how often and by what means you can communicate with them, the proper use of newer communication methods (i.e., mobile phone, voicemail, email, text messages, and social media), the limitation on collection efforts to not more than “7 times within 7 days,” the required use of a “limited-content message” when leaving messages in certain situations, and the restrictions on attempting to collect time-barred debt. This program will explore the problems financial institutions have encountered under these new rules and the lessons learned.
