About this Feature

Do you have members requesting to post their paycheck to their account a day early? Use this on-demand one-time posting that must be requested by an individual member, each time they wish to receive their deposit early, to post ACH credit deposits (that are pending in the ACH warehouse) early.


Use this screen to turn on the feature, set the fee amount and associated G/L, and indicate whether the fee can be waived at posting.  Select whether to activate it in Phone Operator, Mobile/Online banking, or both.  (Or of course do not activate it.) Refer the field descriptions below.

How the Feature Works in Phone Operator

Once activated, your employee can post your member’s pending deposit by selecting the GO! button above the ACH column in Phone Operator and then selecting the pending transaction.  On the ACH Warehouse Inquiry screen simply select the deposit on the screen and Post now. (Post now is only available for deposits.)  This will take you to a second screen where you can post the transaction.

How the Feature Works in Mobile and Online Banking

Once activated, members can post their pending ACH deposits by selecting "Post Now" next to the pending ACH deposit.  On the next screen, the member selects a fee account (if configured) and confirms the posting.  At that time the pending ACH deposit is posted, and the funds are available to the member. If the members have any distributions tied directly to this deposit, those will post early as well. (Any automatic funds transfers will happen at their normally scheduled time.)
