PSC prefers funds returned using Automated Clearing House (ACH) Direct Deposit (Remittance Express [REX]) or FedWire.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE INCLUDE:
Electronic returns include fields to include financial data. Please make use of these fields and include pertinent subaccount information if it applies.
Returning funds to PSC via Automated Clearing House (ACH) means you will most likely be returning funds to PSC in the manner in which they were received at your organization.
