Payee Positive Pay is an additional Positive Pay service offered by Associated Bank. Payee Positive Pay takes the extra step in matching the clearing payee name to the payee name on your check issue file. A “payee mismatch” exception will be reported if the name on the check does not match the name received in the check issue file. Payee Positive Pay provides you with an additional layer of verification, allowing you to manage the risk of loss due to presentment of fraudulent checks, or the alteration and/or payment of such items.
