The Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic funds transfer network of regional associations (many operated by the Federal Reserve), inter-bank associations, and private sector processors. ACH provides a safe, efficient method of moving funds on a next-day basis without the time delay of paper checks or the expense of a wire transfer. Money can be moved to and from any financial institution that participates in the ACH network.
