But they know that on the other side, when their money transfers are received, they are supporting elderly parents, siblings, spouses, and sometimes their own young children. Each year, American families send more than $100 billion abroad using international money transfers, also known as remittances.

The remittance rule creates a comprehensive consumer protection regime for remittance transfers sent by consumers in the United States to individuals and businesses in foreign countries.
Today’s proposal builds on a final rule on international money transfers that was published by the Bureau on February 7, 2012, and later supplemented on August 20, 2012. The final rule creates a comprehensive consumer protection regime for remittance transfers sent by consumers in the United States to individuals and businesses in foreign countries.
The rule implements new protections under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that require remittance transfer providers to disclose fees upfront, as well as the exchange rate and the amount to be received by the recipient.
Under the new rule, remittance transfer providers will generally be required to disclose the exchange rate and all fees associated with a transfer so that consumers know exactly how much money will be received on the other end.
A report released today by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recommends principles for maximizing consumers’ ability to receive and use exchange rate information when making remittance transfers, and examines the incentives and challenges related to using remittance data in credit scores.
