Opening New Accounts - Three-Part Series

This is a three-part series. The prices below are include all sessions. Each session can also be attended individually by clicking on the links below.

Part I - Legal Ownership of Consumer Accounts

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015
11:00AM-1:00PM EST

"It's just a little new account job, right?" If that's the case, why do we feel like we are acting as "estate planners" instead of "account opening professionals"? The main reason is, in many states, the signature card and account agreement ownership could possibly override formal documents created outside of the financial institution - for example, wills and trusts. It is imperative that we understand the consequences of "choosing" the correct ownership box to be consistent with the accountholder's wishes - especially at death. In this session, we cover the definition of the ownership boxes for consumer and trust accounts including: titles, ownership, TIN and authorized signers for that ownership and death payouts.

Part II - Business Accounts

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015
11:00AM-1:00PM EST

It is no longer "okay" to open accounts for non-documented businesses. When you open a commercial account you should verify this is a legal business and who is authorized to transact business on behalf of that entity. In this two hour webinar, we will investigate the types of business entities available in most states and who that "authority" person is to open the account and sign the resolutions.

Part III - Trust, Fiduciary and Minor Accounts

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015
2:30PM-3:30PM EST

Formal, Informal, Revocable, Irrevocable, Minor Custodial Accounts, Court Ordered Accounts - what does it all mean? It never fails to raise the panic level when someone dumps a binder full of legal trust documents on your desk or wants to open an account in the minor's name and SSN. This two hour webinar will delve into the responsibilities of collecting the correct documentation, titling the account correctly, choosing the correct ownership and allowing proper access to the account.
