Opening Member Accounts Online Webinar


Opening accounts online is a major convenience for members, and it creates efficiencies for credit unions. Unfortunately, from a compliance perspective, it is also riddled with pitfalls. Your Bank Secrecy Act compliance risk escalates when a new member comes to your credit union through the Internet instead of in-person. There are also regulations like Truth-in-Savings and Privacy that require disclosures at account opening that need to be considered.

You must take care to minimize compliance and fraud risk when you open new member accounts online. Let compliance expert Gaye DeCesare give you the guidelines that should be included in your policies and procedures to control your risk without sacrificing new member convenience.
