Nacha publishes the attached form entitled “Compensation Agreement – Request for Restitution of Ach Entry Funds” (“Compensation Agreement”) for use by financial institutions in certain situations where an ODFI seeks restitution of funds from an ACH transaction, and the RDFI wishes to receive written compensation in addition to the compensation contained in the nacha operating rules (“Rules”. Nacha encourages financial institutions to familiarize themselves with this agreement and to examine the situations in which they can be used, as their use will reduce delays and costs associated with negotiating the terms of agreements between financial institutions.  c. The beneficiary is or has received payment under a valid and collectable insurance policy or a compensation clause, passage or contract, unless payment under the insurance policy, clause, provision or agreement is sufficient to fully compensate the beneficiary, in which case the free issuer is liable for possible defaults; or compensation refers to the party that is protected in the agreement and the exempt giver is the party granting protection. Nacha became aware of the fact that many financial institutions require an additional written compensation agreement for ACH returns requested, particularly when the return of funds cannot be made through an ach return post (. B for example, an R06 return code) or if funds are returned by the RDFI outside the ACH network (for example. B by wire or cheque). These include situations where the total amount of funds from an ACH transaction is not available for restitution or where funds have been transferred to another account at the RDFI. In such cases, a RDFI may require that it be compensated by odFI and that ODFI exclude and execute a compensation agreement or form submitted by the RDFI. This may result in a delay in the return of the requested funds, as financial institutions and their lawyers review the agreement and negotiate its terms, not least because some of the frequently used compensation agreements are not intended to cover ACH transactions. In the case of skydiving, these would be the parties involved in a compensation agreement: BAFT, the global subsidiary of the American Bankers Association`s transaction bank, today published models of fraudulent compensation agreements that member banks can use to try to recover funds fraudulently transferred from a client`s bank to another bank. The documents, which are only available to BAF members, contain annotated and fulfillable versions of full and limited liability agreements that banks can choose based on their needs.
