As of October 3, 2016, the Military Lending Act (MLA) expanded its coverage to banks. This is the first time that the MLA has applied to banks. Is your bank in compliance? Don’t confuse the MLA with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act; they have completely different requirements. The penalties for a violation of the Military Lending Act are severe – damages of not less than $500 per violation, plus punitive damages and attorney fees. This webinar will explain everything that needs to be done to comply with the MLA. You’ll also learn the differences between the Military Lending Act and the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act to ensure compliance with both.
