The Paper Check Conversion (PCC) Project is part of :

  • FSA’s effort to transition to an all electronic and standardized environment for processing collections

  • The CFO authorized the pilot in December 2002

  • PCC’s purpose is to provide an electronic payment collection process, that withdraws money from the customer’s bank account and deposits it to FSA’s account

    • PCC is capable of retrieving check images if needed at a later date

  • PCC is used in conjunction with the US Treasury and the Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank

How will pcc be used

How will PCC be used?
