Section 165(d) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires that bank holding companies with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more and nonbank financial companies designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) for supervision by the Federal Reserve periodically submit resolution plans to the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Each plan, commonly known as a living will, must describe the company's strategy for rapid and orderly resolution in the event of material financial distress or failure of the company, and include both public and confidential sections.
Currently, the largest, most complex banking organizations supervised by the Board are required to file resolution plans by July 1 of each year. All other companies supervised by the Board and subject to the resolution planning rule generally are required to file by December 31 of each year.
