ACH Payment Method for US Garnishments

Hi Experts,

We want to make Garnishment Support payments through ACH File instead of live AP Checks. I have a few queries:

1) We do not want to disturb the existing functionality of disbursing empl's salary through ACH file using pgm RFFOUS_T

But in case of garnishments Support payment, we want to generate the ACH file for the State Disbursement Unit using Payment Medium Workbench (PMW). Is this feasable.

1) For example, let's say there is vendor (say 108001 )and there are three employees whose Support Garnishments are going to this vendor.

Now If u201CIssue Separate Check to Vendor u201Cfield is checked in IT0194, does this ensure separate line items/entries for each employee in the ACH file.

2) Can we assign only one Vendor (say 108001 ) everytime in IT0194 for any employee with Garnishment Category u2013 Support.

3) Can a Vendor ask for the same ACH file in both the formats - CTX and CCD ? If yes, does that mean there will be two payment runs in FI, one for each format.

Can you please help.

    Hello Somdeb,

    See my comments in bold.

    1) For example, let's say there is vendor (say 108001 )and there are three employees whose Support Garnishments are going to this vendor.

    Now If u201CIssue Separate Check to Vendor u201Cfield is checked in IT0194, does this ensure separate line items/entries for each employee in the ACH file. Yes it should create separate line item. At least it does for us. You can test it in your test system. We have custom remittance program for ACH. You can talk to your FI group and give them TP postings document number to identify if it creates separate line item.

    2) Can we assign only one Vendor (say 108001 ) everytime in IT0194 for any employee with Garnishment Category u2013 Support. Depends on the client and vendor requirement. IF all of your garnishments goes to same vendor then yes you can do that.

    3) Can a Vendor ask for the same ACH file in both the formats - CTX and CCD ? If yes, does that mean there will be two payment runs in FI, one for each format. Not sure about format. But you can search SMP about this.

    See, each one of your requirements are mostly functional. So treat them on a trial and error basis in test system.

    Let me know if you have further queries.
