Notification of Change (NOC) Codes

A Notification of Change is created by an RDFI to notify the ODFI that previously valid information contained in a posted entry has become outdated or that information contained in a pre-notification or live transaction is erroneous and should be changed. Many times an NOC occurs because the customer’s bank has merged or been bought by another bank and they have changed the customer’s account or routing number.

If you receive a Notification of Change for any of your transactions, you will need to contact the client and advise them to contact their bank to receive new information regarding their checking or savings account. Having your clients request a “Bank Letter” with all of their account information is the best way to ensure all information is up to date.

As of January 1, 2015 – all NOCs that are received by VeriCheck will be updated automatically to reflect the changed information received by the customer’s bank. VeriCheck will still notify merchants of any Notifications of Change that occur for a merchant’s transactions but information will automatically update on VeriCheck’s servers before the transaction is again submitted to the bank.

Merchants will not have to update/change information for NOCs that are received. As a convenience, VeriCheck will appropriately handle all Notifications of Change while still providing notice to merchants.
