Does the closing of a ATM (which accepts deposits) require prior notification to customers or our regulator?

I would treat the closing of an ATM that accepts deposits the same as if you were closing a branch. Regulators will look at that as a service that is now lost..esp if it is w/in a LMI area.

Check with your primary regulator on this, but I believe the closing of ATMs does not require an advance branch closing notice. The reason is that ATMs are not considered branches for purposes of this advance notice requirement. AR.

You do not have to notify your regulator when removing an ATM.

Notice is not required for the closing of a nonbranch facility, such as an ATM, a remote service facility, a loan-production office, or a temporary branch.

Are you saying that a loan production office is not a branch? If so, where is this definition? We are FDIC regulated and openening a loan production office. Am finding very little on the reqyuirements are nonrequirements of an LPO. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Since you appear to be a State bank, you also need to check on State law requirements.

How would you treat an ATM whose deposit accepting capability is discontinued, especially in a LMI census tract? In short, the ATM will no longer accepting deposits. Although the ATM is still present, a service (accepting deposits is now lost). Internally should we treat this similar to a branch closing (justification for discontinue of service, etc., etc.)?

For CRA purposes I would. You should justify why that service was discontinued in an LMI tract, how it affected residents, etc.
