Compliance Q&A: Check Signature Verification


I was wondering do all checks over a certain dollar amount need to be verified for accurate signatures—can you tell me whether there is a requirement?


There is not a particular threshold amount in the federal laws or regulations, or in the model UCC. So generally speaking, any specific threshold requirement would just be under the bank’s internal policy.
