Federal Automated Recovery System to Help EVSC Recover Funds More Efficiently
Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation has elected to use an outside
company to recover returned checks that have been used to pay for
school lunches. No longer will the district or school staff arrange for
the repayment of checks returned for non-sufficient funds. The Federal
Automated Recovery Systems (FARS) will now be responsible for the
electronic collection of non-sufficient funds checks turned in to any
school or district account.
EVSC will gladly accept your checks. When you provide a check as
payment, you authorize the EVSC to either use information from the check
to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to
process the payment as a check transaction. You also are authorizing
FARS to collect a $20 fee through an electronic fund transfer from your
account if your payment is returned unpaid.
If you have any questions about this system, please the Office of Food and Nutrition at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 435-8258.
