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.
