FinCEN Encourages Communication from Financial Institutions Affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) announced today that financial institutions affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria should contact FinCEN and their functional regulator as soon as practicable to discuss any delays in their ability to file required Bank Secrecy Act reports. Institutions seeking to contact FinCEN should call the FinCEN Resource Center at 1-800-949-2732 and select option 8 or e-mail at FRC@fincen.gov.
In light of the fluid nature of the various recovery efforts, financial institutions are also encouraged to keep FinCEN and their functional regulators informed as their circumstances change.
