  • NASE Supports the Use of Payroll Cards in Letter to CFPB
    and micro businesses have a powerful voice representing their interests NASE has a strong track record of advocating for its Members on Capitol Hill View all NASE news NASE Supports the Use of Payroll Cards in Letter to CFPB Wednesday March 25 2015 The NASE in conjunction with several organizations communicated its support of payroll cards in a letter to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau The Bureau recently released a proposal regarding prepaid accounts in an effort to protect employees from bas practices The letter proposes that the Bureau make three changes to their proposal First we would ask the Bureau to rethink the proposed warning that would lead off the short form disclosure We believe that the formulation you do not have to accept this payroll card and the advice to ask your employer about other ways to get your wages are unduly negative and will discourage employees from using a payroll card We would ask the Bureau to adopt a neutral formulation that does not needlessly discourage use of these safe and beneficial products Second and relatedly we would urge the Bureau to allow issuers to provide an accurate picture of the card s fee profile in the short form disclosure rather than insisting that they only show the highest possible fee in relevant categories which employees likely would avoid Finally we would ask that the Bureau clarify what constitutes acquisition in this context so that employers may continue to provide informational packets provided by the financial institution to employees that include both the relevant disclosures and a card that an employee may subsequently decide to use to receive his or her wages In 2013 30 6 billion was loaded onto payroll card and the figure only continues to grow The full letter can be read here Comment

  • NASE Member Charlie Arnold Testifies on ACA Impact on the Self-Employed
    About Us During his testimony Arnold offered the perspective of our nation s smallest businesses the self employed and micro businesses His testimony centered around the ongoing confusion small business owners across the country continue to have in regards to healthcare enrollment as well as the difficulties in interpreting new rules issued governing Health Savings Accounts HRAs and the disparity between big business and the small business community He testified The impact of the ACA on my business appears to be limited I currently have only two full time employees and several seasonal employees defined as leased employees Yet I have found myself in a continued state of confusion to the status of my current health care coverage As well as the additional confusion caused by the restrictive actions taken by both the Departments of Treasury and Health and Human Services toward the rules governing Health Savings Accounts HRAs and the continuing disparity faced by the self employed versus big business namely the two reprieves given by the Obama Administration to larger businesses in the last year that grants them freedom from complying with the new law However the self employed are left having the March 31 2014 enrollment deadline looming over our heads while we are forced to confront the potential for possible penalties for not enrolling in Obamacare I would be remiss if I did not echo the calls by the NASE for parity between the big business community and America s smallest businesses The self employed and micro business community representing nearly 76 percent of the entire small business community continues to struggle in meeting the ACA s compliance requirements while our corporate counterparts continue to get a pass from the Administration Specifically the NASE is calling for a one year delay in the individual mandate penalty
