The Department regulates Georgia state-chartered banks, credit unions, trust companies, bank holding companies and merchant acquirer limited purpose banks (MALPBs). If they conduct business in Georgia, we also regulate mortgage brokers, mortgage lenders, mortgage processors, mortgage loan originators, check cashers, sellers/issuers of payment instruments, money transmitters, consumer installment lenders, and international banking organizations.
The Department does not regulate national banks (e.g.: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, Citibank, PNC) or federal credit unions, whether operating in Georgia or elsewhere. The Department also does not regulate out-of-state chartered banks (e.g. Truist, Regions) or credit unions, regardless of where they are operating.
