Same Day ACH (SDA) 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. 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.
This change impacts Originators, ODFI’s and RDFI’s – this session will outline the benefits and impacts that these changes bring to ACH processing.
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? How will this change the processes for the RDFI that is required to make SDA credit Entries available for withdrawal by 5:00 on local RDFI time? 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 to 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, details on how the change to the funds availability for both SDA and non-SDA entries will affect the RDFI when processing ACH transactions and remaining in compliance with the changes to the NACHA Operating Rules in the near future.
