ACH information for both Pooled and Non-pooled

ACT now has the option of automatic payment for reimbursement to your checking account.

  • There is no fee for this transaction
  • Completely confidential
  • You don’t have to be burdened waiting for reimbursement checks
  • You don’t have to worry about slow mail or lost checks

All that is needed is to simply fill out the ACH form with the individuals checking or savings account information and reimbursement(s) will be automatically deposited to your selected account.

After the form is completed, simply submit the Distribution Request Form, Submit Backup material (eg Reciepts & Statements) and reimbursement(s) will be sent directly to the account selected. The ACH process will continue as registered until a time when the client requests the process to be changed or ended.

If you have any questions or need assistance, simply contact your ACT Trust Administrator or their Assistant and ask about ACT’s “Direct Deposit” program.
