NCUA rescinds most COVID-19 guidance to credit unions

ALEXANDRIA, VA (June 22, 2023) — Following the ending of the federal government’s COVID-19 public health emergency declaration on April 10, the National Credit Union Administration announced today that it is rescinding many of its pandemic-related guidance to credit unions.

During the pandemic, the NCUA developed the COVID-19 Resource Center and published guidance letters issued to all federally insured credit unions to ensure they took steps to assist credit union members through the unprecedented pandemic and its economic and financial disruptions.

With the ending of the national emergency, the NCUA reviewed all COVID-related supervisory guidance and identified what is no longer applicable or necessary. A complete list of archived or rescinded guidance and guidance still in effect is available on the NCUA’s website.

The NCUA will also notify state supervisory authorities of this action to ensure awareness of the archiving of outdated pandemic-related guidance and any pandemic-related guidance that remains in effect.
