Record Retention & Destruction Rules: Paper & Electronic
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MT

Various regulations and federal and state laws mandate retention of specific documents (both traditional paper documents and electronically stored information) for a designated period of time. Unfortunately, these laws overlap and conflict, causing confusion. In the past, some institutions simply retained all records permanently “to be on the safe side.” That isn’t practical today because retaining all records can actually harm the financial institution. All institutions must have a systematic record-retention and destruction policy that covers electronically stored information and traditional paper documents. This webinar will address legal and regulatory requirements and practical considerations for both electronic and paper document retention and destruction.

Continuing Education: Attendance verification for CE credits upon request.


  • What documents should be kept and for how long?

This informative session is designed for deposit and loan staff, operations personnel, compliance staff, managers, auditors, and anyone else responsible for creating record-retention policies and responding to document requests.
