Join us January 5, 2024 for a late Q4 2023 Quarterly Rules Update.
HERNDON, Virginia, Oct. 17, 2023 – Ongoing adoption of Same Day ACH and the continued increase in business-to-business (B2B) payments led the ACH Network to robust results in the third quarter of 2023.
Growing cybersecurity threats and regulatory concerns have amplified the need for increased operational resilience around all critical banking and payments functions.
It’s an issue vexing financial institutions big and small—while keeping Nacha’s National System of Fines busy handling disputes: proof of authorization.
It’s been more than three years now—July 2020, to be exact—since the ACH Contact Registry went live. And as recently as August of last year, Nacha let everyone know it’s running spot checks on the data within the registry.
Those checks are about to be ramped up.

For more than a decade, Nacha has actively encouraged healthcare providers to move away from checks and receive claim payments by ACH.
Summertime and the living is busy. At least for Nacha’s Industry Engagement team, which year-round promotes the benefits of ACH payments for specific industry use cases.

If an Originator realizes it has fallen victim to credit-push fraud, the only obvious fact may be that a payment didn’t reach the intended Receiver. Beyond that, a flurry of questions can create uncertainty at a time that calls for decisive action.
Herndon, VA – Today, Nacha President and CEO Jane Larimer released the following statement in response to the Federal Reserve announcing its FedNow Service is now live:
“Nacha congratulates the Federal Reserve on the launch of FedNow. It is a significant achievement.
You don’t have to look too hard to find evidence that check fraud is a huge problem that’s only getting worse:
There’s a lot going on in the payments industry, making it important to get out in front of lawmakers and their staffs to help bring them up to speed. That’s why Nacha holds its annual Hill Day to help educate Congress on the importance of ACH payments to their constituents.
