Prevent daily check fraud and errors — Union Bank’s Positive Pay is designed to stop a problem before it starts.
Positive Pay provides additional fraud control by comparing your issued checks and electronic ACH payments against those presented for daily payment and reports any discrepancies to you. Each day, you’ll be aware of any discrepancies that can lead to fraud losses or disruption of payments to your valuable vendors or customers.
On the days you issue checks, simply consolidate your check-issued files and send the information to us electronically. For any new electronic payments you authorize, tell use the payment details including the “company Identification number”. Positive Pay will then match the items presented for payment against your check-issued and ACH rules listed. Each business day, an online report is made available indicating any discrepancies found for resolution by you.
Positive Pay increases the likelihood of preventing forged or fraudulent checks by looking for:
- Duplicate check numbers
- Duplicate check amounts
- Altered account number or payee
- Unreadable MICR lines
- Unauthorized electronic payments
The increasing volume of ACH payments means an increased potential for ACH fraud. To help protect your business from ACH fraud, Union Bank & Trust offers ACH Filter services within the positive pay system, which allows you to define acceptable ACH debits and credits to clear your business accounts.
ACH Filter gives you control and helps protect against unauthorized or erroneous ACH entries - both debits and credits. Set various criteria to authorize some ACH debits and/or credits to post to your account. If any items do not match the filter data, we provide that information to you early in the day so that you can determine whether to honor or return the ACH items.
Through Business Banking Online, you can download a file of cleared or outstanding checks in a spreadsheet format for review or even import into your accounting software. This provides you with significant time savings through increased automation of the reconciliation process.
