Compliance Communications Solutions for Credit Unions

When it comes to the regulation of credit unions and the banking industry, federal and state laws as well as industry rules have become more complicated recently, particularly with the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in 2011. However, the volume and complexity of regulations aren’t credit unions’ only concern. Federal regulations often change from one presidential administration to the next, as existing regulations are removed and new laws are created. State laws and industry rules can also fluctuate. Keeping up with all of this change is especially problematic for local credit unions that can’t afford to maintain a full in-house regulatory and compliance staff.

The answer to these challenges is outsourcing. PrintMail has been a trusted credit union outsourcing company for more than 20 years. We are an industry leader and known innovator with a singular focus on the financial industry. Credit Unions choose to partner with us because of our experience and expertise in the most important aspects of credit union compliance communication:

  • Rigorous quality control procedures and an impressive 99.9999% error-free record
  • Consistent on-time delivery, even in the face of disasters. This is especially important for credit union compliance mailings with a deadline.
  • Customizable designs for your credit union compliance messages
  • Secure electronic delivery options
  • Integrated marketing strategies
  • Regular investment in cutting-edge technology
Lower The Cost of Credit Union Compliance Printing and Mailing

As member-owned, not-for-profit financial institutions, credit unions are constantly on the lookout for new ways to deliver high quality service and value to their members. Outsourcing your credit union compliance communication strategy can reduce your bottom line by up to 20% or more, especially when combined with PrintMail’s other outsourcing services such as statement printing and mailing. When you cut expenses in one area, you can devote more resources to the core services your credit union does best.

Our credit union clients report savings of up to 20% from outsourcing their bank compliance mailings, especially in combination with statement printing and mailing and other PrintMail services. When you reduce expenses in a non-core competency area of your business, you can invest more in the products and services that make you more competitive.

PrintMail delivers cost-effective solutions for our clients by taking advantage of maximum postal discounts, using presorting and Intelligent Mail Barcode tracking integration to streamline the process, acquiring the latest equipment so you don’t have to, and offering conversion strategies to persuade more of your members to choose electronic delivery.

Credit unions’ biggest security concern is the handling of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). For example, member social security numbers, full names, birth dates, addresses, and other sensitive information can be used alone or combined with other data to identify, locate, or contact an individual person. Federal, state and industry regulations dictate how PII should be collected, disclosed to third-parties, and secured. PII rules affect most pieces of mail credit unions send, so you must do it right or you will face fines. Outsourcing your compliance communication and other mailing removes the in-house burden of following and adhering to so many laws.

Besides the higher number of regulations, there has also been an increase in the amount and length of communications credit unions are required to send. These additional rules, due to the Truth in Lending Act, are also burdensome for small credit unions that now have to process even more communication materials that contain PII. When you combine these federal financial regulations with state law, industry rules, and the specific requirements of the USPS, it makes perfect sense to outsource your compliance communication strategy to an experienced company like PrintMail. You’ll maintain the quality and security your members rely on while making your in-house operations more efficient and cost-effective.
