Processing ACH Reclamations from the Federal Government can be challenging!  Chapter 5 of the Green Book has been updated making it mandatory for Financial Institutions to respond to all reclamations must be submitted through the Automated Reclamation Processing System (ARPS) located in Treasury’s Pay.gov web portal (except for responses by DFAS and any Treasury-approved exceptions). The Nacha Operating Rules still apply when processing these payments but the Green Book outlines exceptions when handling DNEs (Death Notification Entries) and Federal Government Reclamations. A side-by-side comparison of Commercial vs. Government Reclamations will be included to know what the difference is and how to handle each one.

Difference between handling Commercial Reclamations and Federal Government Reclamations
 


Processing ACH Federal Government payments differs slightly from the Nacha Operating Rules when it comes to benefit payments and the liability of the RDFI (Receiving Depository Financial Institution).   Chapter 5 of the Green Book has been updated making it mandatory for Financial Institutions to respond to all reclamations must be submitted through the Automated Reclamation Processing System (ARPS). Also noted in the Green Book -- Note: We will no longer accept remittances related to reclamation responses. 
Included will be a discussion on the process for deceased account holders and your responsibilities to the Federal Government if they are receiving federal government benefit payments. 
This 90-minute session will provide the details on what is different how the Federal Government has adopted the Nacha Operating Rules and what the exceptions to those Rules incorporate for the Federal Government.  You will learn what the Green Book is and how this valuable online tool will help you with processing DNEs and Government Reclamations. Commercial Reclamations differ from Federal Government Reclamations; the speaker will cover the difference between the two, which also discusses the liability for the RDFI when handling both these types of reclamations.  Examples used throughout the session will apply the rules discussed to help bring the details to life.
