3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

A credit union has the right to setoff its member’s account if certain legal requirements are satisfied. This webinar will explain these requirements and will address the steps a credit union must take before it exercises its right of setoff.

If a member defaults on a loan, when can the credit union apply money from the member’s account to pay the loan? Does the member have to be notified before the credit union exercises its right of setoff? What if the member’s account has more than one owner? If the credit union receives a garnishment from another creditor, can the credit union setoff before honoring the garnishment? Learn the answers to these questions and more.
