Below are common questions and answers to help agents better understand EACCESS:

ACH and Check Commission Payments

What are ACH Payments?

The Automated Clearing House system is an electronic network for financial transactions in the United States. The ACH system processes large volumes of credit and debit transactions and can include: direct deposit, payroll and vendor payments. 

If I have an ACH filter or block on my small business account, what do I do to remove it in order to receive an ACH payment? 

You may have an ACH block placed on your account by your bank to protect you from fraud. To remove this block, you will need to contact your bank to ensure ACH payments are enabled from EMPLOYERS Company ID 2650555445.

How do I get my routing and account number for the ACH form?

Refer to the bottom of your check for your routing and account number. In the event that the account and/or routing number(s) do not match the check provided, we will default to the numbers on the voided check you provide. 

 

How do I sign up for ACH deposit of my commission payments?

You can email ACHEnrollment@employers.com requesting this service and we will follow-up with an email from DocuSign. 

What is DocuSign?

DocuSign is a company that provides electronic signature technology to facilitate the execution of documents and contracts. 

How do I use DocuSign?

You will receive your ACH Authorization Form via email from DocuSign (docusign.net). In the email, click the “Review Document” button to start the signing process. Follow the DocuSign alerts and step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the signing process. You will need to attach a voided copy of your company’s check and a copy of your company’s current W9. Note that your W9 form must be the December 2014 version from the IRS. By clicking on the attachment icon located on the bottom left corner of the form.  Both items should be attached as one document. Forms received without a copy of your check and current W9 will not be processed.

When are checks printed?

Checks will be printed the 15th of each month and mailed out the 16th of the month.

When will I get paid?

Printed checks and ACH commission payments will go out on the 16th of the month or the following business day when the date falls on a weekend or holiday.
