Order No.: FCS 3-2011
Filed with Sec. of
Certified to be
Rules Amended: 441-710-0500
Subject: The Department of Consumer and Business Services
(DCBS) revised its credit union assessment rule to ensure that Oregon-chartered
credit union fees are equitable, and that the assessment fees accurately
reflect the costs of supervision. The amended rule increases the excess rate 26
percent to produce a positive fund balance through the end of December 31,
2011. The increase covers decreased revenue resulting from a recent merger of a
state-chartered credit union with a federal credit union and costs associated
with additional joint examinations of credit unions with assets over $250
million. The amended rule also changes the date fees are due from March 1 to
April 1. Changing the due date will provide DCBS sufficient time to calculate
the assessments and provide the credit unions with 30 days notice of the
