Notice to Customers Making Payment by Check

The Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (Check 21) authorizes banks to process checks electronically, thereby faster and more efficiently.

Please note:

  • The bank will make a legal copy of  your original check, destroy the original check, and the original check will not be returned.
  • The bank will use the copy to electronically debit your account (EFT) usually within 24 hours and the debit will appear on your regular account statement.
  • The bank will make up to two EFT attempts in the case of insufficient funds, after which it will be returned to your bank. Your bank may charge you a return fee, which varies by bank.

This notice is provided in accordance with the U.S. Department of the Treasury regulations at 31 CFR 210, Appendix C.
