    TO THE PRESIDENTS OF ALL STATE-CHARTERED BANKS WITH TRUST POWERS:

    Dear Sir or Madam: 

    Please read this letter thoroughly for instructions on how to download, input, save and email the First Quarter 2012 call report forms and instructions from the DFI Web site. If you do not have access to the Web, or cannot access, input or email the forms, contact Patrick Carroll at pcarroll@dfi.ca.gov or by telephone at (415) 263-8559 to make other arrangements.

    Effective March 31, 2010, Schedule T was revised to incorporate changes made by the FFIEC to Schedule RC-T.  In addition, beginning March 31, 2010, all schedules of Schedule T - Fiduciary and Related Services, will be made available to the public on an individual basis.
     
    If you have any questions, please contact Assistant Deputy Commissioner Norman Edwards at (213) 897-2170 or nedwards@dfi.ca.gov.

    FFIEC Report Copies

    The requirement that banks submit two copies of the FFIEC call report has been eliminated.  Please keep a copy of the FFIEC report in a file at the bank, together with a signed, executed certification form.  This file must be available upon request to examiners during the course of a bank examination.  Banks making revisions to the FFIEC call report must continue to send a hard copy of the revisions to this office, as well as filing a copy of the revisions in the call report file at the bank.   Please send revisions to Patrick Carroll at the Department of Financial Institutions, 45 Fremont Street, #1700 San Francisco, CA 94105-2219.

Call report preparers without access to the World Wide Web may request hard copies of the form by contacting Patrick Carroll at (415) 263-8559 or by e-mail at pcarroll@dfi.ca.gov. Do not return the Certification Form to this office.
