(& fraud protection)

     Your checking account number identifies you as the account owner so that you can receive or pay money to or from your account.

· Every person or company you have ever written a check to sees your routing number and account number.

· The purpose for the insurance company to get the routing number and account number is to set up automatic monthly drafts for the amount specified and authorized by you, the account holder. That is why the account holder must approve this on a recording, if over the phone.

· The insurance company bank and your bank participate in the national Automated Clearing House (ACH) network. Tens of billions of ACH payments are made each year. There are federal laws protecting consumers in this system. Your bank must show what company is the recipient of any ACH draft and its phone number. Laws require banks to refund fraud through ACH transfer. ACH transfers are safer than paper checks.
