Event Details


For the 30 or so years I have been involved with credit unions, people keep saying that checks will be obsolete. Glad I didn’t hold my breath. This webinar is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of all the different laws, rules and regulations that affect checks and checking accounts, including:

  • Regulation CC provisions regarding holds
  • Check 21 notification and error resolution requirements
  • Uniform Commercial Code rules on liability between parties to a check,
  • Proper payees
  • Endorsements
  • Rules for stop payments

Please note:  This program is intended for credit unions from all states, but some state rules may vary. Please consult your state league or credit union attorney if you have questions.
