“Check and Correct” Effective Entry Dates for Same Day ACH Debits in Phase 2

September 7, 2017

On September 15, 2017, when debits become eligible for same-day processing, a “today’s date” in the Effective Entry Date field will be treated as valid for a debit entry and settled on that day, assuming it is submitted timely into an ACH Operator’s same-day processing window.  This Guidance strongly encourages ODFIs, their Originators, and software and processing vendors to “check and correct” Effective Entry Dates for ACH debit processing, even among those who do not intend to use same-day processing – i.e., do not be an inadvertent Originator of same-day ACH debits.
