On December 10, the Office of Thrift Supervision, regulator of the nation's savings institutions, issued a new assessment schedule. Pursuant to Technical Bulleting (TB) 48-25, assessment rates for savings institutions have been adjusted for inflation pursuant to 12 CFR Part 502. TB 48-25 supersedes TB 48-24, dated December 6, 2006. However, the fee schedules and savings and loan holding company assessment schedule in TB 48-21 remain in effect. The OTS imposes semiannual assessments on thrifts based on three components: its size, its condition, and the complexity of its portfolio. TB 48-25 adjusts the size component of the savings association rate schedule. These changes are effective for the January 2008 savings association assessment. A link to the new TB is provided below.
