To

Chief Executive Officers of All National Banks, Federal Savings Associations, and Federal Branches and Agencies; Department and Division Heads; All Examining Personnel; and Other Interested Parties

Summary

On April 16, 2020, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)1 announced the availability of two FFIEC Federal Disclosure Computational Tools: the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) Computational Tool and the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) Computational Tool. These web-based tools facilitate supervision of financial institutions with regard to applicable laws and regulations and assist financial institutions in their efforts to comply with those laws and regulations.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has discontinued use of the OCC's Annual Percentage Rate Calculation Program for Windows (APRWIN) and Annual Percentage Yield Calculation Program for Windows (APYWIN) in favor of the FFIEC Federal Disclosure Computational Tools. The OCC's APRWIN and APYWIN are no longer available for download.

Note for Community Banks

The FFIEC Federal Disclosure Computational Tools are available to community banks.2
