Assessments to Fund CFPB Rise 46 Percent, Employee Bennies Jump

Assessments levied on the Federal Reserve Banks for the CFPB came to $563.2 million for calendar-year 2013, up from $385.2 million for 2012, an increase of 46.2 percent, according to a new report from the Fed Office of Inspector General. The assessments are based on each Reserve Bank’s capital and surplus balances. Also, the bureau transferred to the Fed funding for the operations of the OIG in the amounts of $10 million and $3 million in 2013 and 2012, respectively. “Beginning in 2014, the bureau’s funding share of OIG operations will be adjusted based on actual OIG expenses and work allocation from the previous year,” the report said.
