FFIEC ANNOUNCES NEW APR AND APY COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS

On April 16, 2020 the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) announced the availability of FFIEC Federal Disclosure Computational Tools, including the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) Computational Tool and the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) Computational Tool. The FFIEC member agencies collaborated to develop the Federal Disclosure Computational Tools, which will assist financial institutions in their efforts to comply with the consumer protection laws and regulations.

  • The APR Computational Tool is designed to streamline the process by which examiners and financial institutions can verify finance charges and annual percentage rates included on consumer loan disclosures subject to the Truth in Lending Act and its implementing regulation, Regulation Z. This web-based tool supports the verification of disclosed APR calculations related to unsecured and secured installment and construction loans, including real estate-secured loans. The APR Computational Tool also supports verification of compliance with the Military Annual Percentage Rate (MAPR) limits under the Military Lending Act.
  • The APY Computational Tool supports verification of APYs on consumer deposit account disclosures subject to the Truth in Savings Act, including advertisements and periodic statements.

The new tools replace the old APRWIN and APYWIN tools. We would to express our eternal gratitude to Alan Dombrow, who originally developed and faithfully maintained the old calculation tools. We could not have survived all these years without the tools you developed.

The new FFIEC Federal Disclosure Computational Tools are available at  https://www.ffiec.gov/calculators.htm.
