Automated Clearing House (ACH)
Convenient, efficient and secure means for incoming and outgoing payments

Automated Clearing House (ACH)

Using eTreasury+, our state-of-the-art Web-based treasury management system, you can streamline the transfer of funds and reduce the number of paper checks you write. Use ACH services for T&E reimbursement, vendor payments, direct deposit of payroll, pre-authorized payments, tax payments, and more.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

An EDI item is a special type of ACH payment that has an addenda record attached to the financial transaction. The addenda record contains various pieces of information relating to the dollar amount being sent (an example of information included in an addenda record is the invoice number(s) that should be credited for the payment sent). People's United Bank is able to interpret this information and provide you with a same-day fax of information the sender put in the addenda record.  

Features and Benefits:

  • Improve productivity
  • Increase accuracy and reduce errors
  • Improve funds availability by avoiding delays created by invoicing and mailing of checks
  • Reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating the use of paper and ink


Account Reconciliation

Account Reconciliation 

Account reconciliation can help simplify and streamline your monthly reconciliation efforts.  With Full Reconciliation, your company sends us a file containing check issue information and we match checks-issued with checks-paid and balance the activity to your bank statement.  Any discrepancies will be researched and resolved by People’s United prior to providing your monthly recap reports.   Reports include a paid and outstanding item report as well as exception reports for items like stop payments, voids and deletes.  Reports are conveniently made available to you via eTreasury+, our internet banking platform.
