On February 18, 2015, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation extended the submission deadline for resolution plans for three non-bank financial companies including American International Group, Inc., General Electric Capital Corporation, Inc., and Prudential Financial, Inc. Originally due July 1, 2015, the “living wills” are now due on December 31, 2015. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires non-bank financial companies designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council for supervision by the Federal Reserve Board to submit plans describing their resolution strategy in the case of material distress. The extension is consistent with extensions to other firms and will give the companies additional time to prepare their resolution plans.
