The IRS is now requiring financial institutions to correctly report those hard to value assets within an individual’s IRA. Most stocks and other traditional investments are easy to value. The price is determined by the markets or found on a bank statement. But some assets are not so easy to find a value for, and that's a problem if those assets are held in an individual retirement account or other tax-deferred retirement account.

The number of consumer complaints and litigation against small to mid-sized community banks and credit unions has been growing aggressively. A report released in August 2017 shows that lawsuits filed under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) surged following a 2015 declaratory order by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that loosened the standards for filing such suits. The report details that TCPA lawsuits increased from 2,127 to 3,121—or 46 percent—in the 17-month period after the FCC order versus the comparable period before.
The TCPA, passed by Congress in 1999, is is a federal statute that prohibits unsolicited advertising by fax machine, automated recorded voicemails, advertising calls to mobile telephones or other devices where the customer must pay to receive the call, and solicitation after a customer has added his or her name to a "Do Not Call" list. Likewise, recent court decisions have also held that unsolicited text messages are also covered by the list of prohibited communications under the TCPA.

Bankruptcy isn’t anything a creditor should fear! Bankruptcies have for a long time been the bane of both creditors and debtors, but there’s no reason that should be. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can actually be beneficial to a creditor, both during and after the bankruptcy, and as respects current and future obligations or transactions with the filing debtor.
This session is a cost-effective way to minimize the negative impact bankruptcies can have on your business, while providing potential ways to actually turn a chapter 7 into a profitable event for your institution, and arm you with the knowledge it will take to navigate this complex area of law either yourself or with minimal legal help – helping you avoid costly legal fees and harmful write-downs of loans and obligations.

The Gist: Financial Institutions that engage in transactions involving money generated by marijuana-related activity are subject to criminal liability for failure to identify or report financial transactions which implicate violations of the U.S. Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”).
However, there is real potential for community banks and credit unions to offer their services to marijuana businesses. This is because bigger national banks continue to close out the last of their existing cannabis-related accounts. Although your Institution would still take on risk by providing services - which, technically, would violate federal law - if you comply with the Cole Memo and FinCEN Guidance, then this could be a lucrative opportunity.

Who is the best defense against fraud and loss at your Institution? Tellers on your frontline!
Tellers deal with checks every day; however, if they don’t deal with them in accordance with the “law of checks” – that is, the Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) - your institution could face unnecessary headaches and financial loss. Use this webinar to arm yourself and your staff with vital UCC information and examples.
Being a BSA officer requires technical knowledge, communication and cooperation with auditors and regulators, and the ability to navigate and negotiate among entities within your Institution.
We will review BSA requirements and examine real-life scenarios. You will learn which areas in your Institution require additioal research and how to investigate, file, and track a SAR. After attending this webinar you will be well-positioned to meet- and surpass- examiner and regulator expectations.
In this session, we will examine the CFPB's broad application of its UDAAP authority. Taken together with an exploration of the CFPB's various informal guidance documents addressing debt collection issues, we will determine what constitutes a potential UDAAP violation according to the Bureau.
We will also review the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's (FDIC) debt collection recommendations for 1st party collectors, as well as compliance points related to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Finally, we will explore the recent verdicts and rulings that affect how you handle slow-paying accounts.

The focus of this interactive webinar is to limit your financial institution’s liability.

The NACHA Operating Rules still apply when processing these payments but the Green Book outlines the exceptions when handling DNEs (Death Notification Entries) and Federal Government Reclamations.
