WEBINAR DETAILS

The NCUA recently issued a final rule regarding share insurance on joint accounts. The new rule provides greater flexibility by creating an alternative method to satisfy the membership card or account signature card requirements under NCUA Rule 745.8. The trick is to understand what the rule does and doesn’t accomplish. Most importantly, the rule does not impact the importance of obtaining signatures at account opening to satisfy the requirements of applicable state law.

Under the prior rule, additional insurance was only added to a “qualifying joint account.” To meet that requirement, a co-owner had to personally sign the account documentation, as well as have a right to withdraw on the same basis as the other co-owners. The new rule allows a credit union to satisfy the technical requirements by proving they issued a remote access device or evidence of account usage by each co-owner. This provides much greater flexibility, especially during the pandemic.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The information in this session is designed for credit union executives, CFOs, deposit managers, branch managers, auditors, compliance personnel, new accounts staff, and anyone interested in share insurance and the account opening process.
