Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT):

Improve efficiency and go green with our EFT direct deposit service. When you use EFT, you no longer have to wait for paper checks to be delivered through the mail. Instead, your payment is deposited right into your checking or savings account. This environmentally responsible electronic process uses less paper.

The number of EFT transactions initiated by WPS is dependent on the number of bank accounts to which your office requires EFT payments to be posted.

Your Electronic Remittance Advice will be your office's notification of the payment that is posted to your accounts. Notification of your payment into your accounts will come from your bank. Contact your bank for their notification procedures.

Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA):

The easiest way to receive your PRAs is through ERA, which is an electronic version of a payment explanation. ERA is more convenient for you. When you sign up for EFT and ERA, you will find out about your payment via ERA about two days prior to the funds transfer. You can also request to suppress your paper PRAs for even further paper savings.

When you choose to receive Electronic Remittance Advice or ERA, your files will be sent to you in the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) X12 835 format, version 4010A1, and can be downloaded from the WPS Bulletin Board System (BBS), or through our secured Internet site.
