The Durbin Amendment (Section 1075) of the Dodd-Frank Wall-Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and Its Effects on the myCafeteriaPlan Card.
Effective April 1, 2013 a new regulation goes into effect as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall-Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that requires consumers to be provided with the ability to pay using a PIN (Personal Identification Number) at the point of sale, in addition to the current signature process.
