Check 21 is a federal law aimed at allowing banks to more efficiently process checks electronically. Until recently, a bank that received a check has been required to physically present to the check to the bank upon which it is drawn in order to receive payment. This process is extremely costly and very inefficient. As a result, Check 21 became effective on October 28, 2004.
In place of transporting the check from one bank to another for payment, Check 21 allows banks to process checks electronically. Checks may now be scanned, or “imaged” on the front and back and this information can be sent electronically to the corresponding bank. The imaged check can also be used to create a “substitute check” in cases where a physical copy is requested. With lower handling costs the banks become more efficient and your transactions can be processed faster and more securely than ever before.
The financial industry has long used a similar method for processing checks electronically. It is a safe and reliable method for processing check payments and uses technology that has been developed and tested to process your check information securely.
