There are certain offenses that prohibit individuals from gaining employment, including FDIC-insured depository institutions (IDI). Your Guide to Section 19 informs us that individuals with criminal offenses involving dishonesty, breach of trust, money laundering, or enrollment in a diversionary program, may still be given the opportunity to work at an IDI if they receive approval from the FDIC. To apply for approval, an individual or IDI that wants to hire the individual will need to complete an application. The application can be found here. or through the attachment titled f6710-07.

The FDIC's website invites those interested in applying to call their FDIC Regional or Area Office before applying. Here is the contact information for Pennsylvania:

-Expungements do not require an application
