TRUSTED CONTACT AUTHORIZATION FORM
I [CUSTOMER NAME] designate the individual(s) listed below to be my Trusted Contact(s), and understand that in doing so I am authorizing representatives from [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION], and its affiliates, to share financial information, including non-public personal information¹ relating to my account(s), with the designated Trusted Contact(s) listed below, in the sole discretion of [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION].² This authorization applies to any current or future accounts I may maintain at [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION].
I understand that a representative from [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION], and its affiliates, may notify my designated Trusted Contact(s) to share information that includes, but is not limited to, any and/or all information related to suspected exploitation, relevant conversations related to financial information that I have previously provided to [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION], and observations and/or concerns relating to my physical and/or mental capacity if there is evidence suggesting that I am not capable of making decisions relating to my financial affairs in a manner that is consistent with my history and well-being.
I understand that financial information that may be shared by representatives from [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION], and its affiliates, with my designated Trusted Contact(s) includes, but is not limited to, any and/or all information related to my financial account(s), securities, assets, products and/or services.
I understand that my designated Trusted Contact will not have the power, pursuant to this document, to act on my behalf as an agent or to make decisions regarding my finances, unless otherwise legally authorized to do so. I acknowledge that it is suggested by [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION] that the designated Trusted Contact should not be an individual who is currently authorized to conduct business on my account(s).
I understand that representatives from [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION] may, in their discretion, communicate with my Trusted Contact(s) in order to confirm that they have been notified about the designation. Unless otherwise specified in writing, the most current designated Trusted Contact(s) will be deemed to supercede any previous such authorization. I may withdraw or change this designation at any time, as long as [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION] is notified in writing.
I acknowledge and understand that there is no requirement that [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION] notify my designated Trusted Contact(s) and that should [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION] decide to reach out to one of my Trusted Contacts, there is no obligation to reach out to all of my designated Trusted Contacts. I agree that by signing below, I and my heirs agree to indemnify and hold [FINANCIAL INSTITUTION] harmless if they act, or fail to act, based upon their discretion and best judgement.
