Controlled Disbursements

"Just in Time" Funding for Check Disbursements

City National Bank's Controlled Disbursement service can help you take full advantage of your cash resources. You enjoy the use of your funds for the longest possible time, keeping your money employed more productively. With this service you have the information you need to optimize your short-term investment and borrowing decisions.

How it works

Early each day, you have convenient online access to your presentment total and a report of the checks that will post to your disbursement account that evening. You then only fund your funding account for the exact presentment amount. You also have early morning access to review any exception items from the checks that posted and provide your instructions to return or pay them. Because you're funding your account "just in time" and for the exact amount needed, you can have greater confidence in making short term investment decisions and minimize short term borrowing plus the comfort of seeing potential fraudulent transactions more readily.

We offer an East Coast disbursement point with early morning reporting and a variety of additional services. You will receive specialized service, technical expertise and the technology to handle all your disbursements needs.
