Record Retention Manual

A complete record retention policy not only keeps banking institutions in compliance with state and federal retention requirements, but it also conserves resources by not keeping records longer than necessary. Both state and federal statutes and regulations contain record retention requirements.

The SDBA's South Dakota Banking Record Retention Manual is an easy-to-use reference guide for banks and employees. Information in the manual was compiled by SDBA Legal Counsel Brett Koenecke with May, Adam, Gerdes & Thompson LLP, Pierre, in August 2014. The manual is available for free as a pdf file.
