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 what steps need to be taken to implement an effective Regulation CC compliance program; will breakdown the new rule section-by-section and explain the effects these changes have on your check clearing procedures; and, will outline the procedures your institution must have in place for a sound and compliant effective funds availability program.
President Trump has vowed to dismantle the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and as a part of that process the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). While this has been on his radar for some time, the CFPB will be a part of our regulatory lives for the foreseeable future. The CFPB will continue to be a leader in setting regulatory priorities across the financial industry. This session is a forward thinking discussion that will explore what is on the agenda, what we can expect, and what these changes mean for us. We will also discuss the implications of President Trumps vow to dismantle the rules.
This webinar explores the new customer due diligence rules, and how they impact your institution's daily operations. During our discussion, we will explore updates to your BSA program documentation, customer forms, on-boarding processes, system changes, and the extensive training that will be required.

Let’s face it, for many people credit scores are a mystery. Why does one consumer have a 700+ FICO with late payments and past collections when another consumer’s score, with clean payment history is 50 points lower? And why is the credit score we just pulled for a consumer so much different than the one they received this month from their credit card company? If you have these questions too you are not alone.
In this course we are going to dive as deep as we can in an hour and one half, to unravel the mystery behind the FICO credit score. The information provided is invaluable which every employee who works with credit reports and consumers should have.

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.
