Are banks required to risk rate a CD at account opening?
How would I complete a CTR for an estate? The Trust Dept. opened deceased customer's safe deposit box and found $75,000 in cash. Funds were then
deposited into a trust fund. I know the trust employee will be the transactor but how do we handle the "on behalf of"? Do we just put customer's name even though he is deceased? There's no where to put "The Estate of ..."
We are a de novo bank and our BSA officer mentioned that it was "recommended" by FDIC regulators that banks need to check their
correspondent banks on OFAC anytime they send or receive a wire from them. To me this seems pointless and quite excessive. We send/receive wires
through PCBB and I can't see us needing to check OFAC lists for their name daily. Is this really necessary?
XYZ, LLC was opened with a certification of two individual signers owning 10% and 16% of the company. However XYZ’s company agreement stated that another LLC (ABC, LLC) owned 90% and one individual (one of the signers) owned 10% interest of the company. The ABC, LLC was not indicated on the certification.
Based on the XYZ’s company agreement, do we need to request beneficiary ownership information on the ABC owners?
The NCUA has a regulation that will not allow a federal Credit Union to close out a member's relationship without being approved by the NCUA Board.

We received a cash deposit exceeding $10,000 into a deceased person's estate account (personal checking). The executor is an authorized signor on the
account. Will the Benefactor for the transaction be the deceased? Will the executor be listed on the CTR as well? Note- the executor was not the
I am seeking some advise on BSA regulations around aggregation of secondary account holder. Is it a requirement by FinCEN to aggregate transactions based on secondary relationship between accounts and file a CTR?
Example: Joint account relationship
Account (A) - Chris (P) / Joe (S)
Account (B) - Joe (P) / Brian(S)
Chris as a conductor makes 6K Deposit into Act A at Branch X
Later, Joe as a conductor makes 5K Deposit into Act B at Branch Y
should a CTR be filed considering Joe has secondary relationship with Chris in Account A and ultimately benefits from the deposit made?
When addressing Beneficial Ownership-Statutory Trusts, what is the best way to discern a trust that is a "statutory trust created by a filing with a
Secretary of State or similar office"? We have questions regarding how to tell the difference between a regular family trust and a business trust.
