Has your institution implemented proper procedures for the handling of garnishments, levies, warrants, and judgment liens? Most institutions handle these complicated legal documents daily, but many do so without the proper training, which can expose the institution to significant liability. This webinar will explain all aspects of garnishments, levies, warrants, and judgment liens, and the situations in which they are served. Join us to understand how to handle legal processes, such as identifying accounts, placing account holds, answering interrogatories, notifying the accountholder, and remitting funds. You also will learn the special requirements and procedures for accounts that receive federal benefit payments.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
