WEBINAR DETAILS
Has your institution implemented proper procedures for handling subpoenas, summonses, garnishments, and levies?  Although these complicated legal documents are part of the daily fabric, many staff members are not properly trained to handle them – thus exposing the institution to significant liability.  This webinar will explain these legal processes and the situations in which they can be served on your institution.  It will describe proper handling, such as determining what information can and can’t be disclosed, identifying accounts, placing account holds, answering interrogatories, notifying the accountholder, and remitting funds.  The special requirements and procedures for accounts that receive federal benefit payments will also be included.
 
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This informative session will benefit deposit operations personnel, account service representatives, tellers, collectors, compliance personnel, privacy officers, auditors, attorneys, and managers.
