How Positive Pay works:

Issued checks will be required to match: 

  • Account Number
  • Check Number
  • Dollar Amount
  • Payee Name

All four components of the check must match exactly or the check will not get paid, unless approved by you.

As checks are issued, upload a file of issued checks to LANB via Business eBanking. When checks are presented for payment at LANB, they are compared to the issued checks list. If a check is presented that does not have a match in the file, we will notify you via Business eBanking , if you have established an alert. LANB will either pay or return the check per your instructions.
