Signature Cards and Account Agreements

Recorded on April 06, 2017

Many financial institutions purchase signature cards and account agreements from vendors. Whether developed in-house or purchased, your institution’s signature card and account agreement must conform to state law, meet IRS requirements on TIN certification, and provide required regulatory notices. They must also be completed correctly with accurate account styling and proper signatures.
