Direct Deposit Payments Made in Error
Vendor/Travel Reversals

A vendor or travel reversal includes erroneous payments to:

  • Vendors.
  • Individual recipients.
  • State employees for travel reimbursement.

Once an erroneous vendor or travel payment has been transmitted to the automated clearing house (ACH) network, a reversal request may be submitted on the Direct Deposit Reversal Request form (74-191). Reversal requests are only allowed for the reasons specified by the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA). NACHA also requires that the payee be given notification of a reversal and sets a deadline for the date of payee notification (DOPN). See Reversal Requests for additional information.

A vendor/travel reversal request may be processed beginning on the business day after the payment’s issue date displayed on the Payee Payment Information (PYWRNT) screen. The deadline to process a reversal request cannot be later than four banking days from the settlement date of the payment. The settlement date for a vendor/travel payment is two banking days after the issue date on PYWRNT.

Funds received for vendor/travel reversal requests are deposited into the paying agency’s Fund 0980. To request a change from this default fund, see Successful Reversals.
