Special care must be taken when setting up court-ordered accounts.

Understanding who has authority and liability for each type of account is vital.  Documentation and CIP can’t be left to chance.  This webinar will detail the signature card requirements for each type of account so that you can get it right every time.

The federal government or a court has just named someone to legally act on behalf of an accountholder.  Now what?  What can these caregivers and fiduciaries do?  What supporting paperwork must each bring?  This program will review the setup, documentation, and legal issues involved in these high-risk accounts.  Join us to learn how to style each type of account and get the signature card perfect every time.


This informative session will be useful for new account representatives, member service representatives, branch administration personnel, branch operations staff, branch managers, personal bankers, compliance/BSA staff, and anyone who opens new accounts.
