“We are very pleased to work with Early Warning Services to bring this integrated solution to our clients,” said Michael Bellacosa, Global Head of Payments and Transaction Services, BNY Mellon. “Our goal is to support our clients’ digital journeys in the payments space and to help them achieve greater operational efficiencies, manage risk and reduce cost.”

Through this new solution, BNY Mellon will enable clients to validate the status and owner of accounts across the U.S. in real-time to provide increased risk and fraud prevention capabilities prior to the execution of payments. It is also payment agnostic and can be used to verify the status of an account and ownership prior to sending a wire transfer, automated clearing house (ACH) or real-time payment. The service leverages EWS’ Real-time Payment Chek® Service with Account Owner Authentication, which quickly validates if the account is open and in good standing and that the payee is an owner or authorized signer on the account. This will help clients in their efforts to effectively manage risk associated with payment processing across a multitude of use-cases. This service enables clients to better manage the growing compliance requirements to pre-validate payment data prior to making payments or requesting funds.
