Introduction to Direct Deposit
Prohibition on International Payments

According to the Prohibition on Direct Deposit to Financial Institutions Outside the U.S., agencies are responsible for guarding against direct deposit payments they issue through U.S. financial institutions being transferred to financial institutions outside the U.S.

You need to show due diligence to determine the ultimate destination of payments issued by direct deposit:

  • Know your customer
  • Make sure authorization forms are complete
  • Look at the International ACH Transaction (IAT) indicator in TINS

For a helpful introduction to this requirement, see the IAT Tutorial.
