The Department of Banking was created by Nebraska legislators to regulate state-chartered banks and other financial industries within the state. In 1939, regulation of state securities laws was also placed under the jurisdiction of the Department of Banking. Today, the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance regulates and supervises various financial industries on behalf of the State of Nebraska and its residents.
Executive Officer Application Process
The Department has streamlined the Executive Officer licensing application process by reducing the comprehensive application form by two pages.

Bank officers, entering employment as a Nebraska banker, must apply for their first Executive Officer License using the comprehensive form, found here. An experienced Executive Officer, electing to change employment, is not required to complete the comprehensive form. An Executive Officer changing jobs may complete a 3 page application, found here.
