SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), 
Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or 
sponsor. ``Collection of information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) 
and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that 
members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide 
information to a third party.
    With respect to renewal of this collection of information, the 
Agencies invite comments on:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of the Federal banking agencies' functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information 
collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; and
    (e) Estimates of capital or start up costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
    The Agencies are proposing to extend OMB approval of the following 
information collection:
    Title of Information Collection: Reverse Mortgage Products: 
Guidance for Managing Compliance and Reputation Risks.
    OMB Control Numbers: 1557-0246; 3064-0176; and 3133-0187.
    Abstract: On December 16, 2009, the OCC, FDIC, FRB and NCUA sought 
comment on the guidance,\1\ and they issued it in final form on August 
17, 2010.\2\ The guidance focused on the need to provide adequate 
information to consumers about reverse mortgage products; to provide 
qualified independent counseling to consumers considering these 
products; and to avoid potential conflicts of interest. It also 
addressed related policies, procedures, internal controls, and third 
party risk management.

    \2\ 75 FR 50801.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Prior to the effective date of the final guidance, the Agencies 
obtained PRA approval from OMB for the information collection 
requirements contained therein. These information collection 
requirements included implementation of policies and procedures, 
training, and program maintenance. The requirements are outlined below:
     Institutions offering reverse mortgages should have 
written policies and procedures that prohibit the practice of directing 
a consumer to a particular counseling agency or contacting a counselor 
on the consumer's behalf.
     Policies should be clear so that originators do not have 
an inappropriate incentive to sell other products that appear linked to 
the granting of a mortgage.
     Legal and compliance reviews should include oversight of 
compensation programs so that lending personnel are not improperly 
encouraged to direct consumers to particular products.
     Training should be designed so that relevant lending 
personnel are able to convey information to consumers about product 
terms and risks in a timely, accurate, and balanced manner.
    The Agencies are now seeking renewal of the PRA approval granted by 
OMB for these information collection requirements.
    Affected Public:
    OCC: National banks, Federal savings associations, their 
subsidiaries, and Federal branches or agencies of foreign banks.
    FDIC: Insured state nonmember banks.
