ReSubmitIt®

First Bank is here to help you with all of your business needs, including one of your biggest headaches—returned checks.

First Bank's electronic check recovery service, ReSubmitIt®, significantly reduces the burden of collecting funds from NSF checks, while potentially doubling your recovery rate. You collect more returned checks and get 100% of the face value of all checks that are collected electronically.

The ReSubmitIt® electronic check recovery service handles the collection process electronically from beginning to end, via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network for re-presentment directly to the check writer's bank account.

How does ReSubmitIt® work?

Returned checks are sent from First Bank to ReSubmitIt®, where eligible checks are converted into electronic items for re-presentment to the check writer's bank account for collection.

The electronic check file is processed and strategically timed for re-presentation. Presenting checks at proven "smart dates" improves the chance of collection.

If the item is not recovered on the first electronic re-presentment, it is re-cued for a second electronic re-presentment (third total). If this third presentment fails, the check can be sent to ReSubmitIt's® free secondary collections, or the check can be sent back to you.

Upon settlement, 100% of the face value of the check is reimbursed to you automatically. The check writer's account is charged a state-regulated collection fee to cover the cost of collection.

Eligibility

To be eligible for electronic recovery, a returned check must:
  • Be a personal check to a business (not business-to-business)
  • Be under $2,500
  • Be less than 180 days old
  • Cannot have been already submitted twice, either electronically or by paper draft

What happens to ineligible checks?

Returned items that are less than $2,500 and ineligible for electronic re-presentment are re-submitted to the check writer's account as a paper draft, subject to eligibility requirements. Items equal to or greater than $2,500 are not eligible for ReSubmitIt® services.
