Annual adjustment of fee-based trigger amount for additional disclosure requirements.

The Federal Reserve Board on August 19, 2003, published its annual adjustment of the dollar amount that triggers additional disclosure requirements under the Truth in Lending Act for home mortgage loans that bear rates or fees above a certain amount.

The dollar amount of the fee-based trigger has been adjusted to $499 for 2004 based on the annual percentage change reflected in the consumer price index that was in effect on June 1, 2003. The adjustment is effective January 1, 2004.

The Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act of 1994 bars credit terms such as balloon payments and requires additional disclosures when total points and fees payable by the consumer exceed the fee-based trigger (initially set at $400 and adjusted annually) or 8 percent of the total loan amount, whichever is larger.
