Details:The approval of the Same Day ACH (SDA) rules amendment was announced by NACHA on May 19, 2015. We have completed the second of three phases allowing same day debit entries across the industry. Now we're moving into a new era!  Later in 2017, we’ll have Real-time Payments (RTP), a new payments channel developed by The Clearing House. Faster payments impact every participant in the Payments Industry, this session will discuss the role of Same Day ACH and the impact of Real Time Payments and other faster payments initiatives.
