Paychex Earns Second Renewal of Nacha Certified Status

May 13, 2022

Nacha has approved Paychex for a renewal of its Nacha Certified status through May 2022.

When the Nacha Certified program began in 2018, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management software solutions for human resources, payroll, benefits, and insurance services, was the first payroll provider to achieve Nacha certification. In 2020, it secured a two-year renewal, and today, Paychex has once again been approved as Nacha Certified through May 2024.

The Nacha Certified program helps Third-Party Senders in the ACH Network set themselves apart in today’s competitive market. To become Nacha Certified, an organization must meet rigorous standards in areas including ACH Rules compliance and risk management, as well as demonstrate sound corporate governance. Upon being granted Nacha Certified status, a full review is required every two years.

“The commitment Paychex shows to sound ACH payment processing practices plays an important part in keeping today’s modern ACH Network the secure payment system it is,” said Michael Herd, Nacha Senior Vice President, ACH Network Administration.

“Paychex is proud to continue to hold this designation and industry-leading certification for processing ACH transactions,” said Frank Fiorille, Vice President of Risk, Compliance, and Data Analytics at Paychex. “Recertification with Nacha gives our clients the added peace of mind knowing that the transfer of funds for both their business and their employees is secure and meets the highest standards in the industry.”
