SAME DAY ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS
As of September 2017, certain electronic payments may post to member accounts the same day they are made, a change made nationally in an effort to keep up with demands for better real-time finance tracking.
The types of electronic debit payments affected by this change are commonly known as Direct Payment, Direct Debit, ACH Debit, Electronic Check or e-Check, or other similar terms. For example, payments made through Bill Pay fall in to this category. These transactions are different from debit card payments or ATM transactions—they use your account number instead of a card for payment.
Many merchants and billing companies offer you the option to make a same-day electronic payment, such as to pay a bill or to transfer funds. If you agree, then the funds might be debited from your account as soon as that very same day. While these types of payments won't be reflected in your account balance as quickly as debit card and ATM transactions, you will have access to more accurate information about your actual available account balance more frequently throughout the business day.
