How it works

BB&T captures incoming check data early each morning and compiles that information into a report. This information is generally available at 7:30 am and 10 am ET each day. You'll be provided with a unique bank routing number for the MICR line at the bottom of your company's checks.

Controlled Disbursement reports only checks that will clear your account—any outgoing wires or other non-check transactions won't be reported. You must fund your account by 2 pm ET each day to cover checks that will clear that night.

Easy reporting options

There are two options available for accessing your Controlled Disbursement information:

  • BB&T CashManager OnLine® Current Day reporting or Direct Transmission Current Day reporting
  • Current Day BAI Direct Transmission

Subject to product suitability review.
