Guidance: $25,000 Per-Transaction Limit

January 5, 2016

The limit on large-dollar transactions (those ACH Entries over $25,000) applies to individual transactions; i.e., a single Same-Day ACH transaction could not be for more than $25,000. There is no similar limit on the aggregate value of a batch of Same-Day ACH transactions. Entries submitted in a same-day processing window that are over $25,000 will not be rejected by the ACH Operator, but will be processed for next-day settlement in the next available processing window.


Guidance: RDFIs - End of Processing Day

January 5, 2016

During Phases 1 and 2 of Same-Day ACH (September 23, 2016 through March 15, 2018), an RDFI is required to make funds available from a Same-Day ACH credit in its customer’s account no later than the end of processing of transactions for that settlement date. While funds do not need to be available for cash withdrawal at that time (e.g., via an ATM), they must be available to satisfy other subsequent debit entries against the account (e.g., to pay ACH debits and checks). This Guidance provides examples for meeting this requirement.
