Frequently Asked Questions

What is Same Day ACH?

Same Day ACH is a universal same-day capability for most ACH Transactions. It builds upon the existing ACH network, establishing a new option for same-day clearing and settlement via ACH. The new rule requires all receiving financial institutions to receive sameday transactions and provide faster funds availability to all clients. Origination of Same Day ACH transactions will be optional for originating financial institutions to offer to their clients.

When will Same Day ACH be implemented?

Same Day ACH will be rolled out in two phases. The first phase consists of sending credit transactions only and will be implemented on September 23, 2016. Client funds availability for credit transactions will be made available by M&T Bank at approximately by 5pm ET. All banks are required to receive same day ACH credit transactions. Phase 2 is being implemented on September 15, 2017. Phase 2 will include debit transactions.

Why was Same Day ACH created?

The rule was created to provide a new, universal capability for moving ACH payments faster. Currently, most ACH payments settle the next business day. This rule can offers businesses and consumers a new option to quickly pay bills and receive funds faster.

Are there any limitations for Same Day eligible transactions?

Yes. Same Day ACH transactions cannot be international transactions (IATs), and cannot exceed $25,000. 

Is this a real time payment?

No. Real time payments post within seconds to an account and settlement happens immediately. Same Day ACH just moves settlement and posting to the same day, rather than the typical next day ACH settlement and posting that occurs now. 

How do same day ACH transactions differ from wire transactions?

Wire transfers differ from Same Day ACH transactions in the sense that Wires process faster (earlier in the day), can be conducted for amounts greater than $25,000 and can be sent both domestically and internationally. Additionally, Wire transactions are irrevocable, while Same Day ACH transactions will continue to allow reversals to be attempted.

Will Commercial and Business Banking customers be allowed to originate Same Day ACH transactions?

Yes. Even though originating same day ACH transactions is optional for financial institutions, M&T is pleased to offer this service in the coming weeks. This service can be offered to approved direct transmission and Web InfoPLU$® origination clients.

Is there a fee to originate Same Day ACH transactions?

Yes, there will be a fee to originate Same Day ACH transactions. All fees will be assessed through the Account Analysis process.

How will this affect the consumer?

Consumers may notice availability of credit funds sooner in their account after Same Day ACH is implemented. 

Will consumers be able to send same day ACH transactions?

No. Origination of all ACH transactions is only offered to Commercial and Business Banking customers at M&T Bank.
