DOB: Department of Banking Advisory Opinions

Advisory Opinions


As a convenience to the public, the Department of Banking is making available for download two indexes to the advisory opinions and decisions issued by the Banking Commissioner.

One index contains advisory opinions concerning banking, credit union, consumer credit and landlord-tenant issues that have arisen under Title 36a of the Connecticut General Statutes, the regulations implementing Title 36a, and other statutes or regulations under the jurisdiction of the Department of Banking. This index also contains decisions which are the actual approvals and denials issued by the Banking Commissioner with respect to various banking and credit union transactions. At present, the index covers the time period between February 1976 and August 2008.  All advisory opinions and decisions are categorized by subject matter, public act number, regulation number and statute number.

A second index contains business opportunity advisory opinions issued by the Banking Commissioner between July 17, 1981 and January 15, 2002 concerning issues that have arisen under Title 36b of the Connecticut General Statutes.  All advisory opinions are categorized by subject matter, public act number and statute number.

Please note: At this time, the text of individual advisory opinions or decisions is not available on-line. If you locate a particular opinion or decision of interest and would like to obtain a hard copy, please contact the Department at (860) 240-8142 or by E-mail.  Please provide your name, mailing address and telephone number if making a request via E-mail.  The fee charged by the Department of Banking for copies of a public record is $0.25 per page.

The Department will periodically update both indexes. In the interim, the Department will publish links on this page to monthly summaries of new Department opinions and decisions that relate to the referenced subject areas.
