This service enables processing, editing, distribution and settlement of virtually any ACH payment during the current processing day as provided for by the ACH Rules. The ACH Rules exclude from eligibility international transactions (IAT), automated enrollment entries (ENR) and transactions above $25,000. Additionally, in order to process and settle same day, an item must be received by a same day transmission deadline and must not contain a future date in the effective entry date field.
The FedACH processing schedule (PDF) provides all transmission deadlines and settlement schedules for both future-dated and same day ACH items.
Refer to the Same Day ACH Resource Center for information about Same Day ACH and the impact on FedACH Services.
