Forms and Fees

Pursuant to Arizona Administrative Code R20-4-104, the Superintendent has the discretion to accept alternative application forms, but it does not limit the Superintendent’s power to require additional information necessary to complete an application.

As a general rule for banks, and in a Federal/State cooperative effort to cut down on duplicate application submission, a copy of the application submitted to the appropriate federal agency is the acceptable form to submit to AZDFI.  For Non- Member banks contact FDIC.  For Member banks contact FRB.

Please refer to Arizona Revised Statutes §§6-101 through 6-395 and Arizona Administrative Code R20-4-201 through R20-4-215 for Arizona Law.  You can contact Greg Dunn at 602-771-2822 for specific questions to Arizona statutes and rules.   Please contact your chosen federal regulator for specific questions on federal laws and regulations.
