Legal Disclosures for Checks

A check is a written, dated, and signed instrument that contains an unconditional order from the drawer that directs a bank to pay a definite sum of money to a payee.

While there are no longer Reg E requirements for disclosures regarding check conversions and same day ACH, it may become a UDAAP issue when the consumer does not expect a physical check to clear right away. As a best practice, the Platform should be transparent when checks are converted to ACH payments as they may be debited more quickly than expected.

Checks are customizable, however, the MICR line must remain compatible with OCR devices.
