This webinar is designed to help financial institutions avoid losses related to check handling. It is not a comprehensive review of the uniform commercial code, Regulation CC, ACH rules or federal regulations affecting checks. Content focuses on the “pulse points” where losses become recognizable or avoidable. The presentation’s purpose is to provide financial institution personnel with information relevant to points in the payment process where they can make decisions that minimize the risk of loss for both the institution and its customers or members.
Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
- Evaluate existing operations and procedures to reduce risk of loss
- Realize that the law governing checks is a commercial, not a consumer protection statute
- Be aware of whether the law would allocate a loss to the financial institution or its customer, depending on the facts
- Better understand some of their bank’s policies and procedures surrounding the handline of checks
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This program is designed for financial institution personnel who design and implement procedures for handling foreign checks deposited and cashed as well as on-us checks presented for payment. It is presented at the basic or introductory level.
