There is much to be aware of when closing an account. It’s important to balance the demands of providing outstanding service with regulatory requirements and prudent operating procedures. Are you certain of the individual's identity? Does this person have authority to close the account? Are other signatures required? How and when are the funds disbursed? Does the account have increased BSA risk due to cash volumes, wires, etc? What disclosures are required? This webinar will address all these questions and more. Tools and checklists to ensure compliance will be provided.

HIGHLIGHTS
