Expanding access to civil legal services in Wisconsin.

WisTAF

OUR MISSION

The Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation Inc. (WisTAF) is dedicated to equal access to the civil justice system, funding legal services for low-income persons through the fair and effective administration of Interest On Lawyers' Trust Accounts (IOLTA), Public Interest Legal Services Fund (PILSF), and other sources.

Financial institutions

Financial institutions provide the substance of the IOLTA program. The commitment of banks, credit unions and savings & loans to the communities they serve is reflected in their participation in IOLTA. The interest earned on attorney IOLTA accounts is helping our friends and neighbors across Wisconsin. WisTAF is proud to work with these dedicated businesses.

Financial institutions operating in Wisconsin can establish IOLTA account products. (Note: Changes to Wisconsin Supreme Court Rule 20:1.15(e)(2), which address insurance and safety requirements, went into effect on January 1, 2011. These new requirements impact financial institutions, such as credit unions, that are not insured by the FDIC.)

These financial institutions determine the amount of funds WisTAF receives by the interest rates they provide and the service fees applied to these accounts. Though no financial institution is required to establish IOLTA accounts, the majority of Wisconsin’s 300-plus financial institutions participate in the IOLTA program.
