Key Take Away

Get details on what just happened with the adoption of the new Same Day ACH Rule and what it will do for the ACH payments network and identify the impact on financial institutions (ODFIs and RDFIs), including their originators.


Earlier this year, on May 19, 2015, the Electronic Payments Association (NACHA rules) approved Same Day ACH transactions which will enable the faster movements of payments by enabling same day settlement for virtually any ACH payments network.

With this new Rule, two new same day settlement windows will be added to the network, increasing funds movement to three times each day. The rule will enable Originators that desire same-day processing the option to send same-day ACH transactions to account at any RDFI. For Receiving Institutions (RDFI), the Rule will require them to receive same day transactions and give faster funds availability to their account holders.

In this 90-minute information-filled webinar you will learn how this new Rule will allow financial institutions and businesses to acclimate to a faster processing environment, as well as to ease the implementation effort; these new capabilities will become effective over three phases beginning in September 2016 and ending in March 2018.
