Payee Positive Pay

Let us help protect your organization against the risk of check fraud with our Payee Positive Pay service.

Combine with Account Reconciliation Service >

M&T Bank’s Payee Positive Pay service is provided subject to M&T Bank’s standard Master Treasury Management Services Agreement and Treasury Management Services Product Terms and Conditions for that service.

Working to Help Prevent Check Fraud

For years, check fraud and forgery were committed by technically sophisticated and artistically talented criminals. Today, with more powerful and user-friendly computer technology and high-quality printing equipment, the tools needed to put a fraudulent check scheme in motion are easily accessible. 

With M&T Bank's Payee Positive Pay service, you can help protect your organization against the threat of fraudulent, altered and counterfeit checks.

Reducing Risk

For additional fraud protection, our Payee Positive Pay service can be used in conjunction with our Account Reconciliation

How It Works

Provide M&T with an electronic file of check information including check number, dollar amount and payee name(s). M&T will compare checks that are presented for payment against your check issue file. We'll notify you of any suspicious items that do not match what is listed in your issue file. This enables you to review and return fraudulent checks early in the payment process.
