Understanding the credit union’s check hold rights and responsibilities can mean the difference between taking a loss and avoiding a loss. Although members may want to use deposited funds immediately, there are times when applying holds can save the credit union (and in some cases the member) from having an item returned. Join us to learn about the maximum time frames and circumstances for correctly placing deposit holds. Then there is the return process. This webinar will address the specific time frames in which to return an item unpaid and the required notifications to the financial institution where the item was deposited. Also, in this era of remote deposit capture and substitute checks, it is important to understand what a substitute check is (and what it is not), plus the additional rights and liabilities that substitute checks entail.
