AB 2364 (Wagner) was signed into law by Governor  Edmund G. Brown Jr. and became law on January 1, 2013. Included in the law is  new Code of Civil Procedure Section 684.115 which requires financial  institutions with more than 9 branches or offices, and allows financial institutions with 9 or fewer branches or offices, to file with the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) one or  more central locations within California that are designated for service of  legal process. This law applies to financial institutions, including state or national banks, state or federal savings and loan associations, credit unions, or like organizations, and  corporations engaged in safe deposit businesses. “Legal Process” refers to each and all of the writs, notices, orders, or other papers required or permitted to be served pursuant to Title 9, including adverse claims as to deposits and safe deposit boxes.
