Segregated Disclosures

DEFINITION of 'Segregated Disclosures'

A series of lender declarations that are required by law to be grouped separately from other documents in a vehicle lease. Segregated disclosures are required by Regulation M, issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Board. Regulation M is intended to apply the consumer leasing provisions included in the Truth in Lending Act (Title I, Consumer Credit Protection Act).
