Federal credit union members could have more options for short-term, small-dollar borrowing under a rule proposed today by the National Credit Union Administration Board.

The proposed rule would create one new product in addition to the current payday loan alternative that has been available to federally chartered credit unions since 2010. The Board also is requesting credit union stakeholders to comment on a possible third option.

“The Board’s goal is to help people of modest means by expanding access to safe and affordable short-term, small-dollar loans,” NCUA Board Chairman J. Mark McWatters said. “Federal credit unions have had a payday alternative loan option since 2010, which has been extremely effective. Now, we want to create additional opportunities.”
