What do you need to know when handling checks payable to a business, trust, or other fiduciary account? What if someone is attempting to negotiate a check using a power-of-attorney? These and other advanced endorsement issues will be addressed during this webinar.

There are specific precautions that financial institutions should take when handling checks that are not payable to individuals. This includes ensuring checks are endorsed properly and clearly indicate the representative capacity in which the person is signing. Otherwise, the credit union could be liable if it allows someone to negotiate an item and obtain funds to which they are not entitled. Join us to learn more about advanced endorsement issues.
