Reg CC: Checks and Holds

Webinar | 1 1/2 Hours | CE Credits: 2.0

Regulation CC is the regulation governing the availability of funds for transaction accounts and the holds which financial institutions can place on checks. This regulation was passed in 1988 and continues to be one of the toughest compliance problems in financial institutions around the country. Questions like can we place a hold on a cashier’s check? How many days can we hold checks on a new account? Does this apply to business accounts? Do we have to give the hold while the account holder is there or can we mail it later? These questions will all be addressed in this informative and easy to follow program for the frontline. You will need a copy of your hold form and Regulation CC disclosure to follow this frontline program.
