Financial Services Direct Payment
Financial Services is offering each local church the opportunity to have their pension and/or health benefit invoice payments paid by bank draft (i.e. the money is directly taken from your bank account).
The advantage of this process is that the local church will no longer need to write a check each month to pay their invoices. This process saves the church the cost of checks and postage each month. It also takes the worry out of paying the invoices as the bank draft is done automatically.
The ACH procedure will work as follows:
Each local church will have access to their pension and health benefits invoices and statement by the 15th of each month. On the 25th of each month (or the first business day after the 25th of the month), the payment will be withdrawn from each church’s bank account to pay their invoices. The local church needs to make sure that funds are available in their bank account on that date to make their payments.
As always, Human Resources should be notified of any changes to benefits as soon as possible. Changes must be received by the first day of each month in order to be reflected in that month’s invoicing. Changes received after the first of the month will be reflected in the invoice for the following month.
If you would like to participate in this bank draft program, please fill out the attached form, attach a voided check, and mail both to the following address:
