Prepare for payments transformation. In November 2017, The Clearing House (TCH) and 25 partnering banks launched the first new core payments structure in the United States in more than 40 years. The new system permits real-time payment clearing, marking a major change for treasury operations that have been using the one- to two-day Automated Clearing House (ACH).

The new system, dubbed RTP for “real time payments,” was designed and built through the collaborative efforts of TCH and its partnering financial institutions.
