This report checks the ACH Master Distribution file against CU*BASE master member records and shows any errors, including closed accounts, invalid account base, etc. This report can be used as a research tool if you are trying to “clean up” your ACH master file and remove any items that are no longer needed.
The fact that an item appears in the ACH master file does not necessarily mean that transactions are still being received. For example, a member could have had an insurance payment taken from his checking account via ACH for a period of time, then arranged for the transmission to stop and closed the credit union account, but the original ACH record would still exist.
Likewise, a member may have closed an account but still be receiving ACH transmissions through another company for another reason. Therefore, it is important to do further research on the member before unilaterally “wiping out” the record.
