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.
The focus of this interactive webinar is to limit your financial institution’s liability. This session outlines your responsibilities to the Federal Government if a beneficiary is deceased but still receiving benefit payments. 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.
This session will explore all elements of your business continuity plan, including design, testing and implementation.
Every financial institution should have a tested business continuity plan. This plan should prepare your institution for when something goes wrong. The potential for disaster is limitless, from short term software failure to long term facilities loss. Having a plan in place will help your institution deal with these disasters with confidence and in an effective and efficient manner.
This webinar, designed specifically for financial institutions, walks through typical federal tax refund situations and helps staff develop a strategy to successfully navigate potential pitfalls. In this course we will answer common institution questions, including:
We suspect a customer is committing tax refund fraud. Can we do anything?
When is our institution potentially liable for losses associated with tax refunds?
What return reason code do we use if we need to return a refund?
Can we check to see if an account holder is entitled to a tax refund?
Prepare yourself and your team for this challenging time of year! Attendees will receive a bonus Tax Refund Handling Checklist to ensure your institution has considered all aspects of handling tax refunds.
