We Get Questions...

Q and A
Q.)  We received a wire with no name included, just account number. The account owners have received this wire many times before but they always included a name. Is it OK for us to accept this wire and post based solely on the account number?
A.)  Certain provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code, Article 4A, allow for a beneficiary bank to rely on the account number for posting of a wire transfer (UCC §4A-207 – Misdescription of Beneficiary). Considering the “unidentifiable person” reference and the individual organization’s risk appetite, an FI might choose to make a business decision to post solely on the beneficiary account number, regardless of what is or is not present in the beneficiary name field. Members are encouraged to consult with their internal risk and compliance teams to determine a best practice for their individual organization.

Reg E Error Resolution

Good news for those who were unable to attend our live Reg E Error Resolution webinar on September 11th! That session was recorded and is now available to order on-demand.
  • On-Demand Webinar

    Regulation E places obligations on financial institutions to investigate consumer disputes for unauthorized electronic transactions for ACH, ATM and debit card entries. Using real life scenarios, this session addresses error resolution compliance and procedures to handle disputes within the various payment systems.
Note: If you ordered this on-demand topic prior to September 17th, you received a recording from 2018. There have been no changes to Reg E during this time period; however, you can still order the 2019 recording at no charge. Remember, all TCHPA-presented workshops, webinars and on-demand recorded sessions are FREE for members of The Clearing House Payments Authority (TCHPA)!
