Webinar: How to Complete & File UCC-1 Financing Statements
Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

A UCC-1 Financing Statement is used by financial institutions to perfect security interests in non-titled, non-deeded collateral, otherwise known as personal property. Completing the UCC-1 form and determining the appropriate filing office can be tricky. An improperly completed or filed UCC-1 will result in loss of your institution’s perfected security interest.
