EFTS Tip of the Week

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Replenishing your account in a timely matter is important. Many of you submit paperwork to your accounting department and they, in turn cut a check to us. Please follow-up on your request to be sure the payment has actually been processed and a check has been issued and mailed. Checks are posted to the account on the day the check was received in our mail. If you do not see the payment reflected in your balance, we have not received your payment.

Are You an EFTS User?

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Check your reports! Your Report for the Current Accounting Month is “real-time” and the most accurate reflection of your EFTS account’s current balance.  Sign in with your LIBID and password, then click the link on the left that says “Reports.”

Logging in at least once a month to view your Reports is not only an effective way to prevent overspending, but you can also be sure there are no erroneous charges posted to your account!

The EFTS system processes all transactions that are uploaded or entered manually. It does NOT have the capability of verifying the information.  Every member is STRONGLY encouraged to review posted transactions for accuracy.
