Starting September 2017, withdrawals to your account will come out faster than before!
An upcoming change in the way payments are processed through the Federal Reserve will allow ALL payments and deposits in the United States to go through on the same day you pay them starting September 15, 2017. Deposits moved to the same day credit system last year in September 2016.
Same Day ACH Debits are useful for paying loan payments faster, but this also means a “written” check could post to your account immediately. Previously, it might have posted to your account in 2-3 days. The check could be deducted from your account the same day. To avoid overdraft or insufficient fund fees, please make sure the balance in your account is enough to pay any debits or withdrawals you have written or authorized.
For example, after September 15, 2017, when paying your utility bill with a check it could be converted to an electronic ACH payment by the electric company. Before, the check could have taken 2 business days to be deducted from your account; after September 15, 2017, the utility company could send the check to your account for payment on the same day it was received or delivered to the utility company.
