Over a month ago, the Military Lending Act (MLA) went into effect and created a major shift in pawn operations for those wishing to remain compliant under Safe Harbor with the Department of Defense’s regulations. The legislation has changed the information and process needed for pawnbrokers to complete transactions with their clientele, yet there are still many questions unanswered for pawnbrokers nationwide.

She will cover the different risk levels, how to handle rollovers & renewals, ways to collect social security numbers confidentially, and other main concerns that pawnbrokers have expressed, with a Q&A session at the end.
