Why a Financial Institution Should Have a NCP on Staff

Although check volume is on the decline, checks are still here and check fraud is increasing. According to the American Bankers Association Deposit Account Fraud Survey, $1.00 out of every $3.00 in losses are due to counterfeit and returned checks. In addition, we are in the midst of numerous check regulation and rule changes, including: changes to Regulation CC (funds availability and more); FTC changes on Remotely Created Checks (RCCs); and FFIEC’s IT Examination Handbook addition of Appendix E: Mobile Financial Services, which affects Remote Deposit Capture (RDC).

Having a NCP on staff will help your financial institution stay compliant, decrease losses, and be ahead of the curve! NCPs have proven knowledge in every significant aspect of the check payment system including: products and operations; relevant rules and laws; industry standards; and fraud and risk mitigation.

Which Areas of Check Will the Exam Cover?

The NCPC (National Check Professional Certification) Exam covers (4) major categories of the check business: 

  • Rules, laws, and regulations
