Change to Company IDs for RRB Payments

ATTENTION ONLINE AND SELF-PROCESSING CREDIT UNIONS: This message applies only to credit unions with member accounts that receive monthly Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefit payments via ACH.

ACTION REQUIRED: Change to Company IDs for RRB Payments

What changed?

We have just learned from The Payments Authority of a change occurring today. In accordance with NACHA operating rules, the Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service has changed two of the company IDs used for RRB payments effective today, September 25.

Starting with RRB payments dated September 25, the ‘3’ in the first position of the Company ID field will be changed to a ‘9’ as detailed below. The first monthly RRB payments affected by this change will be dated October 1, 2014 and have probably already begun arriving in your ACH warehouse files.

ACH Field Was(Prior to 9/25) Is Now(Effective 9/25)
Company Name(Field 3, positions 5-20) US TREASURY 303 RRB  TREAS 310
Company Identification(Field 5, positions 41-50) 3031736068OR

3031736071

9031736068OR

9031736071

What do credit unions need to do?

When you see these come in on the New Company Report (PACHD3) and/or the ACH Suspense Report (PACHSU), please perform the Copy/Merge function, which will copy the member transfers and account numbers to the new company and save you from having to manually perform this maintenance. Follow the steps below to perform the Copy/Merge function:

  1. Go to the ACH/Payroll Processing menu (MNACHP).
  2. Select Work with ACH Members/Companies.
  3. In the Company name field, enter RRB  TREAS 310.
    • Note that the spacing must be exact. RRB, two spaces, TREAS, one space, 310.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. Select the old company ID.
  6. Click Copy/Merge Dist.
  7. In the To company ID field, enter the new company ID.
  8. In the To company name field, enter RRB  TREAS 310.
    • Note that the spacing must be exact. RRB, two spaces, TREAS, one space, 310.
  9. Click Copy/Merge.
  10. In the confirmation pop-up that appears, click Add/Update.

After performing the steps above, when you go into the new company, you’ll see the new transfers and posting account numbers. To view the records that show the results of the Copy/Merge function, look for records with the wording “DEPOSITOR DELETED” in the Daily File Maintenance Report (LELOG2).

If you have any questions, please contact the Xtend SRS Bookkeeping team.

What We Need to Know

If you’ll be turning on this new feature, please email us with the following information by Monday, August 25:

  1. When do you plan on turning on this feature?
  2. Would you like us to email your members informing them of the new requirement to use a username to log into online banking and how they can set up a username?

Email Xtend

 

Overview of the New Username Requirement Feature

To log into It’s Me 247 online and mobile banking, members currently have the choice of using their account number or a username. While both are secure since logging in also requires a password, the username option helps members keep their account number more private. That’s why with the 14.2 release coming in September, we’re releasing the new username requirement option. If you choose to turn on this feature, all of your members will have to use a username to log into online banking. (Note: Credit  unions that are getting FEP on October 5 will receive this feature at that time.)
