ACH Origination

Let Teachers do your ACH Origination! You'll never miss an electronic payment or transfer again. This service offers fixed-amount electronic transfers recurring on the same date each month. ACH transactions are not considered a wire transfer. There is no fee for processing ACH Originations.

What Is ACH Origination?

ACH Origination is an electronic payment delivery system that allows Teachers to originate and send both debits and credits to participating financial institutions in the U.S.

Funds received via ACH Origination can be credited to your Teachers loan, savings, money market and share draft accounts. Payroll deposits, retirement deposits and Social Security need to be initiated by your Payroll Department, or the Social Security Administration. ACH Origination ensures funds are transferred on the date that you designate.

For variable amounts and dates, please use our online Bill Payer service.

When using your share draft or money market account number, be sure to use your 14 digit account number found on the MICR line of your share draft. If using your savings account only use your saving account number.

For example, if your account number is 123456 that is how you would format it for your savings account. If originating to or from your share draft account then the format should look like this: 12610001234567.
