Introduction to Regulation CC and the Expedited Funds Availability Act

Course Description

This training is designed to help banking staff understand the time-frames for customers to be able to draw against funds they have deposited

The law requires banks, when customers deposit funds into their accounts, to tell them how long it will take before the funds are available to them. Staff need to understand these requirements.

This short, single-module course outlines the types of transactions where banks are required to make funds available to customers the next business day, and the exceptions to these requirements. It also covers those transactions that are excluded from the next business day rule. Staff who complete the training will be able to explain these rules to their customers.

The course also introduces staff to the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act, so they can understand the technology that enables banks to safely comply with the next business day rule.

It gives an overview of the applicable penalties for non-compliance.

Who is this training for?

The course is a suitable introduction forall banking staff who deal with borrowers including credit card holders.
