ACH

Same Day ACH is one of the most significant changes for the ACH Network in its 40-year history. NACHA (National Automated Clearing House Association) approved the new rule to move payments faster. Currently, most ACH payments process on the next business day. Under the new rule, virtually any ACH transaction, including both credits and debits will have same-day capability. Only international transactions (IATs), and single high-value transactions above $25,000 will not be eligible.

The Rule will be implemented in 3 phases over a 3 year period.

  • Phase 1 – Effective September 23, 2016 ACH credit transactions will be eligible for same day processing
  • Phase 2 – Effective September 15, 2017 Same Day ACH debits will be added
  • Phase 3 – Effective March 16, 2018 Receiving Financial Institutions will be required to make funds available for Same Day ACH credit transactions by 5:00 p.m. at the receiving bank’s local time.

All Financial Institutions will be required to receive Same Day ACH credit transactions; Same Day ACH credit origination will be optional. On September 23, 2016 Pacific Premier Bank clients will be able to receive same day ACH credit payments. As a corporate receiver, we suggest reviewing your end of day balances for the receipt of Same Day ACH credits.

We will continue to enhance our Same-Day ACH capabilities and will provide more information as we get close to launching Same Day ACH credit origination.
