Check Block

Concerned about the rise of paper check fraud? Block it. To prevent checks from posting to the account,
Check Block eliminates the risk of check fraud by automatically rejecting and returning paper-based
transactions – making the checking account only accept electronic transactions.

How does check block work?

Check Block works by designating your business checking account as an electronic-only account. This indicator placed on your business account restricts paper-based transactions, so those transactions will no longer be allowed to post to your account. Electronic and internal transactions will still post successfully.

Check Block will allow:
  • Funds to be moved to and from the account using an internal transfer on Business Online.
  • Most types of ACH transactions and wire transfers to post
  • Bill Pay Transactions and ATM Card transactions to post
Transactions that will not post:
  • Paper checks
  • Over-the-counter withdrawals (counter checks)
  • Paper drafts
  • ACH debits, or entries resulting from the conversion of paper checks to ACH debits, such as:
    • Re-represented entries (RCK)
    • Accounts receivable checks (ARC)
    • Point-of-purchase (POP)
    • Back-office conversions) (BOC)
