To update, change, add, or delete your financial institution's point of contact information on FinCEN's distribution list for receiving Section 314(a) Information Requests, you must contact your primary federal supervisory agency. Financial Institutions subject to supervision by either the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency should provide information for Section 314(a) points-of-contact on the institution's quarterly Call Report. Savings associations formerly supervised by the Office of Thrift Supervision should continue to provide this information on the institution's quarterly Thrift Financial Report until they begin filing Call Reports in March 2012. Credit unions subject to supervision by the National Credit Union Administration should update their 314(a) points of contact (POCs) in the on-line credit union profile on the Contacts Tab.
The following items must be provided to update or add your financial institution's POC information: financial institution name and charter number or other identifier; point of contact name and title, mailing (street number, P.O. Box, city, state and zip code) and e-mail addresses; and telephone and facsimile numbers.
Please find your institution's primary federal regulator or self regulatory organization in the below list and forward the above information to them.
