Most creditors have heard of the automatic stay and that it prohibits them from "doing anything to collect," but it prohibits other things too! And most creditors know the stay begins when a debtor filed bankruptcy, but is that always the case? And when does the automatic stay end?

It is essential that those who collect consumer debts have a solid understanding of the automatic stay. Those in management who are responsible for oversight of the collections department must also understand the rule well enough to perform their supervisory role. In fact, anyone who may interact with a borrower who has filed bankruptcy should have at least a basic understanding of the rule.

During this program, participants learn about issues including:

Join collections, compliance and management professionals from across the country for this program to learn how to best protect your financial institution!
