The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is committed to making its Web sites accessible to all users, including those with disabilities, in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. The OCC makes every attempt to publish only material that is fully accessible.

Accessibility Resources:

Plug-ins to free applications

The OCC publishes documents and files in several proprietary formats. To open and use many of these files, you may need to have special software—commonly known as "plug-ins"—installed on your computer. Section 508 requires that when special software is needed to access documents and files, OCC shall provide a link that allows a user to obtain the required plug-ins. If you select any of the following sites to visit, you will be leaving the OCC government Web site for a nongovernment Web site. The OCC does not endorse these Web sites but provides them to support accessibility requirements.
