ACH Origination

ACH stands for Automated Clearing House. Established in 1974, this network has become one of the largest, most efficient and safest payment systems in the world.

Some First Federal Customers use the ACH network to pay or receive:

    • Direct Deposit of payroll; or
    • Direct Withdrawal for billing

Until recent years this process was difficult and complicated because of the encoding required in the ACH files, but with the implementation of our eACH online product, all of those issues are erased. Now it is as simple as filling out an online form to create batches for payroll or billing.
