The CFPB has published a notice in the Federal Register announcing that a meeting of its Consumer Advisory Board (CAB) will be held on October 27, 2016.

The notice indicates that the CAB will discuss “student loan servicing issues and trends and themes in debt collection.”  Presumably, the student loan servicing issues will include servicers’ handling of partial payments, which was the subject of a recent CFPB blog post, and the Department of Education’s recent announcements concerning student loan servicing.  The debt collection discussion can be expected to include the debt collection proposals that the CFPB is considering, which it outlined in July 2016 in anticipation of convening a SBREFA panel.
