Enforcement Actions Against Depository Financial Institutions (Banks and Credit Unions)

All insured banks and credit unions must meet high standards for financial strength and stability. Both 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 financial institutions.  Public enforcement actions and orders by the federal agencies are authorized by federal laws and regulations.  This would include any actions initiated by the federal regulator or issued jointly by the federal and state regulatory agencies.   Any enforcement actions and orders made public against the financial institutions or their affiliated parties can be found at the website of the institution’s primary federal regulator:
