Subject: Insufficient Fund Checks/Required Information
Sumner County’s School Nutrition Program is now using Nexcheck as the service provider for collection
of insufficient fund checks. The company will be collecting the money for bad checks written to the
program for payment of meals and a la carte items purchased. There will be a charge of $30.00 for a
returned check which will be charged by Nexcheck. The amount charged is the requirement from
Nexcheck and not from the School Nutrition Program. If you have an insufficient fund check in the
amount of $20.00 then the amount you will owe Nexcheck will be $50.00. The company adds the
amount of the insufficient fund check plus the $30.00 charge for the returned check to the total for the
amount the parent would pay Nexcheck for the insufficient fund check written.
We regret we are having to depend on a service provider for the collection of returned checks but due
to the amount of returned checks we are experiencing, we must resort to this service to help with
the collection of insufficient fund checks.
We are also unable to accept counter checks. The checks that you send in should have your name and
address printed on them. Also you must include a valid telephone number on your check.
