Various regulations and federal and state laws mandate retention of specific documents (both traditional paper documents and electronically stored information) for a designated period of time.  Unfortunately, these laws overlap and conflict, causing confusion.  In the past, some institutions simply retained all records permanently “to be on the safe side.”  That isn’t practical today because retaining all records can actually harm the financial institution.  All institutions must have a systematic record-retention and destruction policy that covers electronically stored information and traditional paper documents.  This webinar will address legal and regulatory requirements and practical considerations for both electronic and paper document retention and destruction.


  • What documents should be kept and for how long?
  • When can the original document be destroyed after it has been imaged?
  • What are the elements of an effective record-retention and destruction policy?
  • What special steps must be taken when regulatory action or litigation is threatened?
    • Sample document retention and destruction policy
    • Supplemental handout covering your state’s specific requirements
    • Employee training log
    • Quiz to measure staff learning and a separate answer key

Attendance verification for CE credits provided upon request.


This informative session is designed for deposit and loan staff, operations personnel, compliance staff, managers, auditors, and anyone else responsible for creating record-retention policies and responding to document requests.

Please note:  The live webinar option allows you to have one telephone connection for the audio portion and one Internet connection (from a single computer terminal) to view online visuals as the presentation is delivered.  You may have as many people as you like listen from your office speaker phone.
