Payment Information

ACH Payment Information

  • Payment must be by ACH as authorized on page one of your institution's quarterly invoice. Check payments will be returned.
  • If your institution, or correspondent bank, has ACH filters in place, the filters should be set to accept the FDIC assessment debit(s).
  • ACH debits are sometimes bundled together. A debit amount might need to be unbundled in order to identify the FDIC charge.
  • If you owe more than $99,000,000.00, you will receive multiple ACH debits that total your amount due.  The debits will be in amounts of $99,000,000.00 plus a debit for the incremental amount needed to total to your amount due.   For example, if your amount due is $358,000,000.00, you will receive three debits for $99,000,000.00 each and one debit for $61,000,000.00. This same policy applies for refunds greater than $99,000,000.00.
  • Only negative confirmation of payment is provided; that is, your institution is contacted if your ACH debit/(credit) rejects. Failure to make prompt payment can result in a civil money penalty (FIL-43-2007).
