The Green Book & Government Payments Explained

Jason Johnson, UMACHA

Since 1975, the Green Book has offered guidance on the acceptance of federal government payments via direct deposit. As the ACH Network has evolved, so too has the Green Book, which now provides guidance on direct deposit enrollment, garnishment limitations on protected federal benefits, handling claims of non-receipt, and the impact of returning a federal benefit payment.

In addition to these subjects, the Green Book also provides direction on reclamation of federal benefit payments. To limit potential liability, financial institutions must be careful when handling post-death federal benefit payments and reclamation requests. Due to important updates in 2020 and 2021, institutions are encouraged to review the current version of the Green Book to ensure their policies and procedures coincide with statements from the Bureau of the Fiscal Service and the Department of the Treasury. This presentation will examine today’s Green Book and the most-recent guidance.

Electronic Payment Fraud: When Is Your Institution Liable?

Elizabeth Fast, Spencer Fane LLP

The tremendous increase in electronic payment fraud has caused staggering losses to financial institutions. Your institution’s liability for electronic payment fraud will vary depending on the type of fraud, how it occurred, and whether it was a consumer or commercial account.

The varying legalities are mindboggling. UCC Article 4A permits financial institutions to shift liability to commercial accountholders in certain situations, while Regulation E provides much more protection to consumers. The Nacha rules make the originating depository financial institution (ODFI) ultimately liable for an unauthorized ACH, but it is difficult to get the ODFI to pay after the return deadlines. In all situations, however, the law requires financial institutions to use commercially reasonable security procedures. This webinar will explain which party is liable for the various types of electronic payment fraud and what can be done to protect your institution from liability in both commercial and consumer situations.
