Discover the Impact of SDA (Same Day ACH) with Changes in 2021

Recorded Session
90 Minutes


    With SDA fully implemented and due to a recently approved amendment to the Rules, SDA is expanding with a third window for processing SDA transactions and the dollar limit is increasing for a single SDA transaction. History for Same Day ACH (SDA); it was implemented in three phases, beginning Sept of 2016 and ending in March 2018. 

    With this new option in the ACH Network, it gave the Originator and ODFI an opportunity to send and settle payments on the same day for a small fee. The newly approved amendments to the Rules impact Originators, ODFI’s, and RDFI’s – this session will outline the benefits (possibilities) and impacts that these changes bring to ACH operations (processing).

Learning Objectives

    • Describe the changes with SDA in 2020 and 2021
    • Outline potential changes and opportunities for the Originator and the ODFI
    • Identify the added responsibilities for the RDFI when receiving SDA Entries
    • List the benefits for Originators and ODFI’s with the addition of a third processing window
    • Define the funds' availability requirements for the RDFI when receiving SDA Entries
    • Provide suggestions on procedure changes needed to be based on these new Rule changes

Why Should You Attend?

    Recently approved amendments to the NACHA Operating Rules are expanding Same Day ACH by adding an additional window in which Same Day ACH (SDA) Entries can be transmitted, so what does this mean for the ACH network and the participants? This session will outline the upcoming changes and identify the impacts for the Originator, the ODFI, and the RDFI. Another change taking place with the Rules is to increase the dollar limit on a single SDA Entry from $25,000 to $100,000; this will affect the network by adding more Entries (most likely B2B payments) into the network.

    Discussion during this session will include the impacts on the business and electronic payments going forward and how participants can take advantage of this change and benefit from making this a service available to their business customers. In addition, for the RDFI, details on how the change to the fund's availability (already in effect) for both SDA and non-SDA entries will affect posting and making funds available and ensuring compliance with the changes to the NACHA Operating Rules.
