(1) With respect to settlement by a bank, the medium and time of settlement may be prescribed by Federal Reserve regulations or circulars, clearing house rules and the like, or agreement. In the absence of such prescription:

(a) The medium of settlement is cash or credit to an account in a Federal Reserve Bank of or specified by the person to receive settlement; and

(b) The time of settlement is:

(D) With respect to tender of settlement by a funds transfer, when payment is made pursuant to subsection (1) of this section or ORS 74A.4060 (Payment by originator to beneficiary) to the person receiving settlement.

(2) If the tender of settlement is not by a medium authorized by subsection (1) of this section or the time of settlement is not fixed by subsection (1) of this section, no settlement occurs until the tender of settlement is accepted by the person receiving settlement.

(3) If settlement for an item is made by cashier’s check or teller’s check and the person receiving settlement, before its midnight deadline:

(a) Presents or forwards the check for collection, settlement is final when the check is finally paid; or

(b) Fails to present or forward the check for collection, settlement is final at the midnight deadline of the person receiving settlement.

(4) If settlement for an item is made by giving authority to charge the account of the bank giving settlement in the bank receiving settlement, settlement is final when the charge is made by the bank receiving settlement if there are funds available in the account for the amount of the item.

Notes of Decisions

Whether the payor bank had made final pay­ment of the checks and thus was not entitled to honor its customers' stop pay­ment orders, depended on whether the bank had completed its usual pro­ce­dures for determining whether to make pay­ment.
