The Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance recently updated its March 12, 2020 guidance regarding temporary branch relocations (previously discussed here). The Department will continue to temporarily allow licensed and sponsored mortgage loan originators (“MLOs”), loan processors, underwriters, and other staff to work from an unlicensed branch upon notification by the sponsor, and approval by the department. Licensed mortgage bankers who have staff working from unlicensed locations must submit an updated list of those employees to the Department through the NMLS on, or before, March 1, June 1, September 1, and at renewal, in 2021. In addition, licensed MLOs must take certain data security measures and not allow customers to come to the unlicensed location. The guidance is effective January 1, 2021.
