Who has the right to endorse that check? The answers are very straightforward – complicated only by what the member wants us to do. Learning the correct, legal endorsement requirements can alleviate confusion and allow you to quickly and confidently handle member inquiries and situations regarding deposit items. Handling endorsements for fiduciaries, such as a trustee, business account signatory, custodian, guardian, or power-of-attorney can be frustrating if the rules aren’t completely understood. This webinar will examine the applicable rules for each situation, so you will be able to apply your new knowledge in each instance as it arises. Knowing who has the authority to negotiate a check can help the credit union avoid a significant loss.
