Faster Payments

The Clearing House requires all Real Time Payments (RTP) Participants to complete an annual audit to verify compliance with the RTP Participation and Operating Rules, as required by RTP Operating Rule IX.A.2.  Who better to conduct your institution’s RTP audit than your resource for electronic payments information and training?

The audit includes a review of compliance with the RTP Participation and Operating Rules, review of online banking products using RTP, areas of compliance, and review of procedures related to processing RTP payments.
