Each participant in the ACH Network is required to follow the Nacha Operating Rules and be compliant.  There are several NEW amendments (effective in 2021) which will change the ACH Network processes – this is a NEED to know!

This session will begin with an outline of how ACH works, with the option of Same Day ACH (SDA) to move payments “faster” through the ACH Network.  An increase to the SDA dollar limit for each Entry -(effective March 2021), the Unauthorized Return process with a newly repurposed Return Reason Code R11 and the ACH Contact Registry (both effective in 2021) – NEW!!!  and more!

Some questions that will be answered:

Have you met the requirements for the ACH Contact Registry? (The portal became available July 1, 2020)

This session will also cover the newly approved details and any recent updates by NACHA, plus how these changes affect you as a participant in the ACH network, whether you are an ODFI, an RDFI or a TPS or TPSP.  Changes such as Data Security requirements (effective date has been extended) and how Originators are affected by the Fraud Detection Standards for WEB debits.

In addition, the processing of Unauthorized Returns has changed effective April 1, 2020, for phase 1 (phase 2 went into effect April 1 of 2021) – As the RDFI, are you prepared for the proper use of R10 and R11 (what to do if you’re not ready) and as the ODFI, are you aware of changes to the ODFI Reporting Requirements for R11 and the Unauthorized Entry Fee?
