Automated Clearing House (ACH) Debit Block

An Automated Clearing House (ACH) Debit Block prevents all electronic transactions (EFT Debit and EFT Credit) from processing unless they are specifically authorized. For bank accounts with an ACH Debit Block, the Company ID is a password that allows an electronic payment to be processed.

Generally, to place an ACH Debit Block, the bank account owner enters into an agreement with the financial institution. If you are unsure whether your account has an ACH Debit Block, contact your financial institution, and ask.
