Are you ready for Check 21?
Check 21 is a federal law that is designed to enable banks to handle
more checks electronically, which should make check processing faster
and more efficient. Today, banks often must physically move original
paper checks from the bank where the checks are deposited to the
bank that pays them. This transportation can be inefficient and
costly. Check 21 became effective on October 28, 2004.
Instead of physically moving paper checks from one bank to another,
Check 21 will allow banks to process more checks electronically.
Banks can capture a picture of the front and back of the check along
with the associated payment information and transmit this information
electronically. If a receiving bank or its customer requires a paper
check, the bank can use the electronic picture and payment information
to create a paper “substitute check.” This process enables banks
to reduce the cost of physically handling and transporting original
paper checks, which can be very expensive.
A substitute check is a paper copy of the front and back of the
original check. A substitute check is slightly larger than a standard
personal check so that it can contain a picture of your original
check. A substitute check must be printed in accordance with very
specific standards so that the substitute check can be used in the
same way as the original check. If you receive a substitute check
that appears to have a problem, such as it contains a bad picture
of your original check, contact your bank.
