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.

What is in this signature card and account agreement? Why is it so important that the staff completes it properly? What are the repercussions of noncompliance? We will answer each of those questions as we discuss the following topics:
