ACH Payment Changes: New electronic payment processing regulations will take place on Friday, September 15th. Transactions that are processed through the ACH (Automated Clearing House) could post to your account on the same day the merchant initiates the payment. If you have questions regarding any scheduled, recurring or automatic payments you have with a merchant, you will need to contact them to ask if they will be submitting your payments as Same Day debits. This will not affect any payments set up with Gulf Winds’ Bill Pay Service.
