Offering a controlled disbursement product can:

  • Assist your clients in maximizing available cash for investment and debt payments by receiving earlier daily distribution of their check presentments
  • Select from three early presentment times
  • Utilize the service to provide early access to check and account totals
  • Enable your clients to capitalize on early investment opportunities that otherwise may not be available with regular later-in-the-day check presentments

Many institutions will utilize a second routing transit number to facilitate receiving an early daily distribution of their check presentments for controlled disbursement purposes. This process has the added benefit of separating check transactions, including any that could be fraudulent, from their main operating account. This can help reduce risk for your corporate client and your institution.

Ask your account executive about FedReceipt® Plus Premium Delivery.

Providing services that can facilitate controlled disbursement may present a revenue opportunity depending on whether your institution chooses to charge for provision of such services. Charging a fee is strictly a business decision for your institution.
