Corporate CUSO Activities (CCA)

​CCA Overview

In September 2010, the NCUA Board adopted major revisions to its corporate credit union rule. As part of those revisions, effective April 18, 2011, all activities of corporate credit union service organizations (CUSOs) must be preapproved by the NCUA. 12 C.F.R. §704.11(e). Two activities that are already preapproved in §704.11(e) are: 1) brokerage services, as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; and 2) investment advisory services, as defined in the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. See 15 U.S.C. §§78c(a)(4)(A), 80b-2(a)(11). This webpage and accompanying links details a corporate credit union’s (CCU) responsibilities for complying with §704.11(e), the approval process for requesting additional CUSO activities, and a list of those additional activities that are approved for corporate CUSOs, including reporting requirements and other restrictions on any CUSO which desires to engage in those activities.
The approved activities are described on the link above labeled “Approved CCA.” The activities are presented in matrix form, under the following headings: Category (general class of service), Activity (specific service), Description of Service (explanation of service), and Activity Conditions (limitations or requirements on conducting the activity). In addition to the Activity Conditions listed in the matrix, all corporate CUSOs engaged in a particular approved activity must provide NCUA with the following reports by the 25th of the first month after the quarter-end or year-end, unless indicated otherwise:
Quarterly: Financial statements and performance reports;
Annually: Annual report to owners, audited financial statements (30 days after receipt), strategic plan, list of current owners with percentages of ownership, and descriptive list of all products and services provided by the CUSO.

Required reports should be sent to:
             National Credit Union Administration
             Office of National Examinations and Supervision
             1775 Duke Street
             Alexandria, VA 22314-3428
or by e-mail to

NCUA may, from time-to-time, add additional approved activities to the matrix. Once an activity is described in the matrix, any corporate CUSO may engage in that activity without further approval from NCUA.
