CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU STUDY FINDS CONSUMERS IN LOWER-INCOME AREAS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BECOME CREDIT VISIBLE DUE TO NEGATIVE RECORDS
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) today released a study on the transition to credit visibility that found that the way consumers establish credit history can differ greatly based on economic background. Consumers in lower-income areas are more likely than those in higher-income areas to become credit visible due to negative records such as a debt in collection. Consumers in higher-income areas are more likely than those in lower-income areas to establish credit history by using a credit card or relying on someone else. The study also found that the percentage of consumers transitioning to credit visibility due to student loans more than doubled in the last 10 years.

CFPB GETS A WIN IN OCWEN CASE
For going on two months, Ocwen Financial Corporation, the country's largest nonbank mortgage loan servicer, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) have been at odds. Beginning in late April, the CFPB sued Ocwen and its subsidiaries claiming that they have been "failing borrowers at every stage of the mortgage servicing process." Days later, Ocwen responded by filing three motions with the court in hopes of expediting the ruling on the constitutionality of the CFPB and its leadership structure, one of which invited the Department of Justice to participate in the case. Now, a federal judge has slowed down Ocwen's bid to test the constitutionality of the CFPB.

ACCESS TO CREDIT AND FINANCIAL HEALTH: EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF DEBT COLLECTION
Despite the prevalence of debt collection and the intense regulatory activity surrounding this industry, little is known about how these practices impact consumers. This paper conducts an empirical analysis of the effect of debt collection on consumer credit and on indicators of financial health, employing individual credit record data and a difference-in-differences research design that compares outcomes for consumers in states that increased the restrictiveness of legislation with those for consumers in the remaining states. We find consistent evidence that restricting collection activities leads to a decrease in access to credit and a deterioration in indicators of financial health. Moreover, our estimated treatment varies considerably with the borrower's age and baseline credit score, with effects concentrated primarily among borrowers with the lowest credit scores.
