Automated Clearing House (ACH) is the electronic transfer of funds from the Cosumnes CSD into a vendor's designated banking account. Vendors can authorize payments to be made directly to a savings or checking account. All vendors and suppliers are encouraged to participate in Cosumnes CSD’s ACH program.
Enrollment is simple. As a vendor of Cosumnes CSD, you can apply online at our website by completing the ACH Enrollment/Change Authorization Form (external link).
NOTE: You must first check with your financial institution to ensure ACH payments are allowable. Some financial institutions do not accept ACH payments or assess a service fee for these transactions.
To certify the accuracy of financial information provided to Cosumnes CSD, there will be "pre-note" tests to ensure all financial routing and transit numbers are validated and legitimate. Data shown to be invalid will not be used for ACH payments. Cosumnes CSD also requests that vendors provide a voided check or a savings account deposit slip when signing up for the ACH to ensure that the routing and account numbers provided are verifiable.
ACH is the primary system in which businesses and government entities safely send and receive payments between participating financial institutions. ACH is secure, and creative solutions have been built on top of the network in recent years to make it even better.
One of the benefits of ACH is that it will save your business time and money. ACH is a free service offered by the Cosumnes CSD. However, Cosumnes CSD recommends all vendors/suppliers contact their financial institutions for any applicable fees for ACH transfers.
