Check / RDC

Checks are one of the oldest forms of payment and have been used for centuries, but while checks have not changed drastically in appearance, the method by which they move and clear have changed significantly. With the passing of the Check Clearing Act for the 21st Century (Check 21), paper checks no longer need to be physically transported from point A to B in order to clear and settle. Instead, check images can be delivered electronically.
