How can I find out if my employer is a member of FINRA?

By Shauna Carther AAA
A:

To find out if your employer is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority or FINRA (previously the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD)), perform a search for your firm's name on FINRA's BrokerCheck. BrokerCheck is a free service provided to the public by FINRA.



If your firm is currently registered, its information will be in the BrokerCheck database, as it derives its information from the Central Registration Depository (CRD).
