ACH Exception Processing

What is an ACH exception and how do you handle it when it occurs? Many exceptions are rare, and you may find yourself second guessing what you should do. Gain a better understanding of exception processing from returns to notifications of changes to DNE and more, plus return reporting requirements. The bulk of ACH risk is in origination, but if you as the Receiving Financial Institution do not process items that do post correctly, you tip that risk scale in your direction.

We'll discuss the timeline for handling the different exceptions. We will also address reinitiated entries rules and the return rate reporting that ODFI’s are required to do.

Covered Topics

  • Ways to identify exceptions as an RDFI and ODFI and determine the best course of action
  • Understanding the timeframes for exception processing
  • Best practices for limiting your liability
  • An understanding of the importance of using the correct return and NOC codes
