Introduction to Regulation D: Reserve Requirements

Course Description

This training is for banking staff on the limitations that apply to withdrawals from various types of account

Bank staff need to understand the way Regulation D limits the number of withdrawals that customers can make from particular types of accounts using “convenient” methods.

This short, one-module course introduces bank staff to the requirements of Regulation D that ensure banks, credit unions and other financial institutions have enough funds available to be able to meet customers’ requests to withdraw money from their accounts. It describes the limitations on withdrawals from certain types of accounts, depending on the withdrawal method, and provides information on the types of accounts that are not subject to these withdrawal limitations. It includes real-life case studies.

The course also briefly introduces the Federal Reserve’s regulation of the amount of cash reserves that financial institutions must hold.

The course is a suitable introduction for all customer-facing banking staff.
