Accepting items for deposit is just routine – until something goes wrong. When sending deposited items through for payment, your institution is warranting that it gave the funds to the payee. Who is the item really payable to? What about restrictive endorsements? Who can endorse when there are multiple payees? What if no one endorses it, can it still be deposited? The answers to these questions depend on the facts and circumstances of each item and the parties involved, including the depository institution. This webinar will outline the processes to avoid loss, mitigate risk, and examine the rights and liabilities of the parties involved in acceptance, payment, and enforcement of negotiable instruments.
- Institution’s rights and responsibilities when accepting items payable to natural persons, entities, and fiduciaries
- When an item should be rejected due to insufficient or unauthorized endorsement
- Laws that affect payment of negotiable instruments
- Recognizing when an item should not be paid
- When can stop payments be placed and by whom?
- Risks associated with certain types of checks
