    FATCA W-9 Issue

    Our HCUA Compliance team has heard from multiple credit unions who have received a request from Progressive Insurance to complete a Form W-9 to comply with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. Colleen Kelly, CUNA’s Senior Federal Compliance Counsel, contacted Progressive on behalf of our industry. Progressive confirmed they are collecting a W-9 form from every entity that may receive funds, including lienholders of insured collateral. This regulation continues to evolve and although Progressive may be casting a wide net to ensure compliance, CUNA is recommending credit unions complete the Form W-9 or risk back-up withholding.
