If no deposit slip or voided check is available, the participant shall submit a signed statement from the financial organization verifying that the account belongs to the participant and that the information supplied is correct.
c) Each participant shall make all necessary arrangements with the designated financial organization for the receipt of electronic fund transfers, including at least:
1) obtaining the organization's signed, written agreement for electronic transfers, on a form supplied by the State Superintendent of Education as approved by the Comptroller, which shall state that:
A) the financial organization agrees to receive and deposit sums for the participant payee,
B) the financial organization understands that its account number will be included as additional identification on individual payment credits to the participant payee's account and that the participant payee has the right to cancel the authorization with the financial organization,
C) the financial organization agrees to forward all communications from the State of Illinois to the participant payee promptly, including the information contained in the addendum,
D) the financial organization agrees to return all payments that are not due to the participant payee, and

2) establishing the frequency and detail of transaction communications to ensure the participant payee's receipt of the 38-character descriptive entry called for in Section 155.60(c) of this Part, so that the origin and nature of each payment can be correctly identified.
d) Each participant shall designate only one financial organization and one account number to which funds shall be electronically transferred.
e) Within 30 days after receipt of a completed authorization form from a participant, the State Superintendent of Education will request the Comptroller to establish the electronic transfer of funds for the participant by submission of a pre-note or zero fund transfer, i.e., a practice exercise in which no funds are transmitted.
f) After a pre-note transfer from the Comptroller is attempted and the time period allowed for completion of the pre-note transfer has expired, all payments to the participant for programs administered by the State Board of Education will be directed electronically unless the Comptroller receives notice from the financial institution that the pre-note transfer has failed or as may be otherwise required by law.
g) Upon receipt of notice that a pre-note transfer has failed, the Comptroller shall notify the State Superintendent of Education. The State Superintendent shall take the actions necessary to identify the reason for the pre-note transfer's failure and to facilitate the electronic payment to the participant.
