Excused Delay Reminder

A Northeast Snowstorm is forecasted for New England. Due to the imminent blizzard conditions we want to remind you of the Excused Delay provision of the NACHA Operating Rules (Section 1.5, page OR3). Please be aware; if you, as an ODFI receive a late return and dishonor it, it may come back as a Contested Dishonored Return - Timely Original Return R73. In this case, you may reach out to the RDFI and determine if they have in fact invoked an Excused Delay. Be aware, an ODFI receiving a Contested Dishonored Return is the last step an Entry can take within the ACH Network, any additional steps to resolve the return must be handled outside of the Network. The Rule language for Excused Delay appears below.
