Positive Pay and ACH Filtering

Our Positive Pay and ACH Filtering service enables you to detect and mitigate the risks associated with fraudulent checks and ACH transactions.

    • Positive Pay uses data that you submit listing your issued and outstanding checks to ensure that checks being presented for payment correspond to your outstanding checks.
    • ACH Filtering allows you to ‘white list’ Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions (and dollar thresholds) from vendors or merchants that you identify for approval. Other ACH electronic transactions are held for your review.

    The Exception Management process provides an efficient method for you and your staff to view and manage any exception items that have been identified for review (i.e. checks that don’t match what you have issued or are stale-dated or ACH transactions from entities that you have not ‘whited listed’) and decide whether the item(s) should be paid or returned.

    The service also includes extensive reporting options including check reconciliation reporting, outstanding checks, cleared checks, returned items to help you reconcile, manage and secure your accounts.

Conveniently access multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance coverage and earn CD-level rates (typically rates comparable to Treasuries and money market funds) while working directly with Union Bank. Earn one rate for each CD maturity and enjoy the option of reinvesting funds through a simple process. We provide you with one easy-to-read statement summarizing all your CD holdings. Deposits up to $250,000 are insured by the FDIC. When you open a Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS) CD with Union Bank, you can increase that FDIC coverage to millions of dollars.

Insured Cash Sweep® (ICS) service:

With Union Bank you can secure your large deposits while maintaining access to funds. With the ICS service, you can earn interest on funds placed into checking (demand deposit) accounts or money market deposit accounts, while receiving multi-million-dollar FDIC insurance. Access funds through unlimited program withdrawals(using the ICS demand option) or up to six program withdrawals per month (using the ICS money market savings option).

    Simplicity: Work directly with Union Bank and eliminate the need to manage multiple bank relationships in order to insure your deposits above the normal FDIC $250,000 limit. We manage the placement of your funds at participating banks to maximize your FDIC insurance coverage. You receive just one monthly statement from us summarizing your account activity and balances. And, if you manage finances for an organization accustomed to deposit collateralization, you will reduce the need to track collateral on an ongoing basis.*

    Safety: Make even large deposits eligible for protection that’s backed by the full faith and credit of the federal government.

    Earnings: Put excess cash balances to work by placing funds into demand deposit accounts or money market deposit accounts using the ICS savings option, or interest bearing certificates of deposit (CDs) using CDARS. Earn one rate on your ICS savings deposits, one rate on your ICS demand deposits, and one rate per maturity on your CDARS deposits.

    Access: Enjoy unlimited withdrawals using the ICS demand option, or make up to six program withdrawals per month using the ICS savings option. With CDARS, select from a range of CD maturities (4 weeks, 13 weeks, 26 weeks, 52 weeks, 2 years, 3 years, and 5 years).
