PAD will allow Coughlin & Associates Ltd. to (electronically) deposit member claim payments directly into Member bank accounts thus providing convenience and time-savings for Members, particularly for those who have busy schedules and/or travel frequently.  Also avoids payment delays in the event of a postal disruption.

·         FAST: Self-serve enrolment takes 5 minutes.  Faster access to funds.  No more waiting for cheques to arrive by mail. No cheques to deposit.

·         EASY: Enrolment process is easier than ever.  Enter banking information directly in the member portal. No need to submit a void cheque. 

·         SECURE: Online enrolment is more secure than paper enrolment.  Minimizes risk of lost or stolen forms.  Direct deposit is safer than paper cheque payments.
