Webinar: Handling Dormant Accounts & Unclaimed Property


Thursday, January 9, 2014

2:00 - 3:30 pm CST


Speaker: Elizabeth Fast, Spencer Fane Britt & Browne, LLP


About the Program

Dormant accounts and unclaimed property pose unique, and often complicated, problems for credit unions. Credit unions’ procedures and practices regarding dormant accounts and unclaimed property in safe deposit boxes have come under attack by both consumers and state agencies that are entitled to the escheatment of this unclaimed (abandoned) property.


This webinar will explain the Uniform Unclaimed Property Act and the tools every credit union needs to evaluate its dormant accounts and unclaimed (abandoned) property practices. In addition, you will receive contact information for the unclaimed property administrators in every state. Since escheat laws vary, this webinar will not cover statespecific escheat laws. However, you will be able to find your state-specific escheat laws by using the contact information in the handout.
