Why should you attend?
What will regulators find when they examine your financial institution for Reg E compliance with error resolution procedures? Do your employees know what is required? Do they know that a customer can write their PIN on a card and this will not be considered “negligent” if the card is lost or stolen?
What You Will Learn
Our topic for the webinar will focus on several simple steps to handle Reg E customer disputes and inquiries. Understanding the rules will help you satisfy the regulators but can also SAVE YOUR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION MONEY by only paying the claims that you are required to reimburse for unauthorized transactions. We will review the steps required to handle disputes and inquiries and the time frames for resolving a claim for an unauthorized transaction. The only way you can be sure that your front line staff is complying with this high-profile consumer protection regulation is by providing effective training and providing sound procedures.
