Letters to Credit Unions and Other Guidance

From time to time, the NCUA will provide guidance and other information to the credit union system on regulatory and supervisory matters, trends affecting federally insured credit unions and potential risks and threats.

  • Letters to Credit Unions — Provide guidance on specific NCUA policies and procedures, compliance, governance, and other timely issues that affect all federally insured credit unions.
  • Letters to Federal Credit Unions — Provide guidance on specific NCUA policies and procedures, compliance, governance, and other timely issues that affect only credit unions with a federal charter.
  • Risk Alerts — Detail practices or external threats that potentially are a significant risk to the safety and soundness of the credit union system.
  • Regulatory Alerts — Provide guidance on rules and regulations from other agencies that all credit unions must comply with.
  • Supervisory Letters — Provide the NCUA’s examiners with instructions and information on a range of supervisory and regulatory issues.
  • Accounting Bulletins — Provide guidance and instructions on how changes in generally accepted accounting principles and other regulatory initiatives affect how credit unions report these items in their financial statements.
  • Consumer Financial Protection Updates — Announce new activity on consumer compliance laws, regulations and guidance.

You can search these regulatory letters going back to 1979 by document type, the year issued, by subject and by title or keywords. Please note that obsolete letters are not included.
