Programs Administered by Operations: Insurance Collateral

The State Treasurer is required by statute to "safekeep" securities pledged by insurance companies transacting the business of insurance in Virginia (Article 7, Sections 38.2-1045 through 38.2-1058 of the Code of Virginia). Treasury Board has contracted with the private sector to perform the safekeeping and custodial requirements of this mandate. Treasury administers this contractual relationship and performs administrative responsibilities associated with the function such as coordination of activities between the trustee, the State Corporation Commission's Bureau of Insurance, and insurance companies. Treasury also accounts for the securities of insurance companies in liquidation.

Check Image Retrieval System

Department of the Treasury is pleased to announce the migration of its self-serve Check Inquiries service to a new application. The target date for start of this enhanced service is September 30, 2017, after which portal access to the current self-serve check indexing system will be discontinued. To ensure continued access to check inquiries under the new system, please contact your Agency Fiscal Officer or send an email inquiry to onlinebanking@trs.virginia.gov.

The Security for Public Deposits Act (SPDA)

On behalf of the Treasury Board, Treasury administers the SPDA (Sections 2.2-4400 through 2.2-4411 of the Code of Virginia). SPDA provides for a single body of law in the Commonwealth to protect Virginia public deposits held in banking and savings institutions through the collateralization of securities. SPDA requires public depositories to report their public deposit balances and collateral balances monthly to the Treasury Board. Treasury ensures compliance with the reporting and collateral requirements of the SPDA on behalf of all public depositors.
