									  Interest Bearing Accounts
What is it?
Our Non-Profit/Public Funds Interest Checking account has been specially designed to meet the
needs of some of our largest depositors - not-for-profits and governmental entities. These accounts
offer the maximum rates available and have an optional sweep feature.

How does it work?
These accounts function like a commercial analysis
checking account with the flexibility of unlimited
transactions. These accounts can also be linked to our
sweep service which collects excess balances form
other accounts to help streamline your daily cash flow
planning. If the sweep feature is utilized, we can help
you determine a balance threshold so you can avoid
expenses on your account.




These accounts are only available to qualified, not-for-profit organizations or government entities.

                         ACH Services
What is it?
The Automated Clearing House (ACH) is a funds transfer network of regional associations (many
operated by the Federal Reserve), inter-bank associations and private sector processors. ACH
provides a safe, efficient method to move collected funds on a next-day basis without the expense of
paper check stock or a wire transfer. Money can be moved to and from any financial institution that
participates in the ACH network.

How does it work?
We accept all ACH files created in NACHA format. Files must be received by noon in order to
assure timely processing. We recommend that business to consumer ACH transaction, e.g. direct
deposit of payroll, be sent to the bank two (2) days prior to their effective date. Business to business
ACH transaction, e.g. cash concentration may be sent one (1) day prior to their effective date. The
only means of transmitting ACH files to us is through the use of our online banking product. ACH
functions provided through online banking are as follows:
        ~ Single or multiple transaction origination
        ~ Direct deposit
        ~ ACH receipts
        ~ Cash concentration
        ~ The ability to upload a NACHA file or other properly formatted files
        ~ The ability to initiate certain types of Federal and State tax payments

Security
Lafayette Savings Bank originates ACH transaction on behalf of our
customers each year. Our Deposit Operations Department has
implemented many procedures to ensure the secure and accurate
processing of each file received. Transaction processing systems
are continually upgraded to maintain high standards of performance.
Also, our online banking product contains a security feature that
offers the ability to limit transaction entry and transmission
capabilities to certain users via login ID and password.

                                                  CD Images
What is it?
Check storage has long been a necessary component of the account reconciliation process, but one
that has caused many frustrations. We have invested in equipment to alleviate that burden for our
customers by providing images of paid checks on a CD-ROM.

How does it work?
During daily processing, the bank’s equipment
captures images of checks. At the end of each
statement cycle, these stored images are retrieved
and burned on a CD. This CD contains images
of the front and back of each check.* Because
we can provide images of the front and back
of each check, our product provides adequate
documentation for legal proceedings.

The CD includes its own self-loading software
that facilitates the viewing of images. The user
may view the front, back or both sides of the
image as well as rotate and adjust the size of an image. The user may also sort items according to
processing date, check number or account fields.

The CD can be made available as quickly as the third business day following the end of the
statement cycle.

Benefits
            ~ Shortens research time
            ~ Decreases in-house storage needs
            ~ Maximizes fraud control




*By default the CD only provides images of the front of the checks.
If you would like the backs of your check images included as well, you must specify this in advance.

                           Positive Pay
What is it?
Positive Pay is a fraud prevention tool that assists with the identification of unauthorized checks that
are drawn against your commercial account. Examples of unauthorized checks include counterfeit
or altered checks.

How does it work?
Your organization will be asked to
periodically send us a file through our
online banking service containing data
about issued checks (account number,
check serial number, dollar amount an
date). We store this file and compare
it to checks that clear your commercial
account. If a check is presented for
payment that does not match the
information contained in the file for that
check, the check is termed a “suspect
item”. You will be notified via email
on the opening of the next business day that a report of suspect items has been prepared for your
review. A secure portion of our web site is available for you to inspect the image of the suspect item
(front and back) in order to determine its validity. You then have until 10:30 AM (CT) that day to
inform the bank if you would like us to pay or return the item.

Benefits
       ~ Reduces your company’s exposure to check fraud
       ~ Easily integrated with account reconciliation services
       ~ Internet based image deliver to your desktop streamlines the pay/no pay decision process

        Zero Balance Account
What is it?
A Zero Balance Account (ZBA) is a stand-alone checking account that maintains a set balance at all
times. The balance maintained could be zero or any other balance desired.

How does it work?
The account is tired to another account designated as the
concentration account that holds all funds. Deposits
made to the Zero Balance Account are moved tot he
concentration account after the designated balance is
reached. As checks clear the Zero Balance Account,
collected funds move from the concentration account to
the Zero Balance Account to clear presented items and
maintain the designated balance.

Benefits
  ~ Provides an easy audit trail for disbursements or
    deposits made for a special purpose such as payroll
  ~ No time is wasted forecasting cash needed in the
    ZBA
  ~ Eliminates manual transfers of funds between
    accounts
  ~ Your funds do not sit idle in a checking account while your payments are clearing at your
    payee’s bank
  ~ ZBAs and concentration accounts clarify your cash position, allowing you to see when it should
    be altered to fit new circumstances
