Christmas Club Accounts

Christmas Club Accounts: Funds will automatically be disbursed into your Regular Savings Account the first week in November; however, you may withdraw funds from your Christmas Club Account in October without being charged an early withdrawal fee

Same Day ACH rule change effective September 15, 2017

 

Effective September 15, 2017 you may see a change in the way automatic debits clear your account, due to the second phase of the Same Day ACH rule enacted by the National Automated Clearing House (NACHA). NACHA administers operating rules for Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments processed by financial institutions, including Mountain States Credit Union (MSCU). The first phase of this rule was effective September 23, 2016 and concerned ACH credits.  This second phase of the Same Day ACH rule allows for same day processing of ACH debits.  ACH debits include electronic payments, automatic drafts, paper check conversions, or any electronic withdrawal from your account utilizing MSCU's routing and transit number.  Once this rule is in effect, any ACH debit can clear on the same day it is initiated.  For example, if you write a check at a retailer and it is converted into electronic payment, it can clear the same day it is written.  

Please take this rule into consideration when you have ACH debits deducted from your account.  MSCU has no control over when the ACH files are received and you may need to make changes to ensure funds are available in your account to cover your automatic debits.

If you have automatic drafts, such as your water bill, power bill, etc., this would be a good time to review your agreement with the service provider and verify the effective date of your payment, as it will be deducted from your account on that day.

If you have any questions about how the new Same Day ACH rule can affect your automatic debits, please call 423-975-0025.
