Webinar Details

Do you often wonder when to use a Stop Pay form and when to use a Written Statement of Unauthorized Debit (WSUD)? This is YOUR session!

  • Recent UPDATES to the Rules indicate how Meaningful Modernization and subsequent Entries fit into stop payment compliance.
  • Introduction of a re-purposed Return Reason Code R11 has changed the process for returning unauthorized transactions and compliance with the Nacha Operating Rules

The trainer will provide several scenario examples when a financial institution and their account holder are dealing with (1) a request to stop payment, or (2) they revoked/canceled the payment, and sometimes (3) their account being debited by a company they never authorized (where it is already posted to their account).
The Nacha Operating Rules have specifics for you to follow to be sure you are complying each time you help your account holder with their request(s).

  • Determine the difference between Stop Payment for consumer accounts vs. business accounts
  • Help identify what form to use and in which situation (Stop Pay vs. Unauthorized)
  • What questions and conversations should be taking place between the account holder and the customer service/frontline staff working with the customer/member?
  • Key points illustrated in the program (using case studies) will assist customer service and front-line staff as well as identify details for operations staff.
  • This 90-minute session will definitely help clear things up when processing unauthorized, authorization revoked, and stop payments!

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

Recent “minor Rules changes” made Stop Payments different in the Rules with the language used and what happens with Stop Payments due to Meaningful Modernization. Customer service, frontline, and operations staff struggle each day with the question – “What does my account holder want me to do…Stop this payment, return it, or perhaps they revoked it, -- what are my next steps?” Return Reason Codes R10 vs. R11 when returning unauthorized transactions will be discussed in detail. This training program will help find answers to these struggles. Stop Payments and Unauthorized transactions (including revoked transactions) are still the number one issues when processing exceptions for ACH transactions daily
