Are you new to ACH, have some experience or you’ve been processing ACH transactions for many years, this 3-part bootcamp will cover details from the basics to the more complex issues when processing ACH transactions. Even if you’ve been processing ACH transactions forever, each part in this bootcamp will help you understand “the how” of the ACH network. There are operations staff who process ACH transactions each day but still don’t really know how the ACH network flows and details surrounding their day-to-day processes. Knowing the details makes it easier to resolve those issues that may be few and far-between, plus knowing “how” transactions move within the network helps identify possible solutions to specific issues as they arise.

In the entire 3-part ACH Webinar Bootcamp series, attendees will hear details on:

  • History and basics of the ACH network, the flow of transactions, the five basic participants, their general responsibilities and roles
  • Basic legal framework of the ACH network
  • Common terminology and products/applications used
  • Settlement vs. Funds Availability and how this pertains to Same Day ACH
  • Overview on special processes within ACH (Stop Payments, Returns, NOCs)
  • Timeframes for consumer to notify errors regarding EFT’s and financial institution’s responsibilities
  • Regulation E – the Error Resolution Process
  • Same Day ACH – Credits and Debits and how this is changing the ACH Network
  • Reinitiation of Entries and the Reversal Process
  • Recent 2017 NACHA Operating Rules Changes plus changes taking place in the near future
