Enforcement Actions and Orders Against Financial Institutions

All insured banks and credit unions must meet high standards for financial strength and stability. The federal and state regulatory agencies regularly review the operations of insured institutions to ensure these standards are met.

The Department is not authorized to publish examination ratings, number of complaints, or informal administrative actions issued against individual financial institutions.  Enforcement actions and orders announced to the public by the federal agencies are authorized by federal law and regulations. These would include any actions initiated by the federal regulator or issued jointly by the state and federal regulatory agencies.  Any enforcement actions and orders made public against financial institutions or their affiliated parties can be found at the website of the institution's primary federal regulator:
