Our recent examiner said we must work up a potential SAR report for summonses & subpoenas. Does this apply if the subpoena is on a former customer (currently closed)?
We qualify loan applicants based on gross income. Our credit officer says that tax free income from SSI or VA Disability is the gross income and shouldn't be grossed up. I say the income is net and should be. Who's right? If we don't gross tax SSI up, are we discriminating?
Is an Enterprise Risk Assessment required for banks of a certain asset size, or by a certain regulatory agency?
An issue has arisen at my bank concerning the need for a signatory on a homeowners association account to submit his social security number. My bank's BSA Officer believes that he must do so. I am not so sure. This individual has no personal accounts with our bank, but is listed as a signatory on two accounts dealing with homeowner's associations. The person in question refuses to give his social security number. How are HOAs classified for purposes of the USA Patriot Act? It's my understanding that the HOA is the owner of the account. I know that the signatory situation was in the proposed rules, but not the final ones. I would appreciate it if someone could provide me with some guidance.
