Today's Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples' Day Holiday and Checkwrite Schedule

Today, Oct. 11, 2021, is Columbus Day/Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which is a federal holiday, although not observed by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) or GDIT.

However, in keeping with the published 2021 checkwrite schedules, because of the federal holiday, the checkwrite date this week will be on Wednesday, Oct. 13. The posting and availability of funds to provider bank accounts will depend on the provider’s financial institution. Bank of America customers should see their payments in their accounts on the day that the EFT is processed, which will be Thursday (Oct. 14). Providers who bank at other financial institutions should see payments the business day following the date that the EFT is processed, which will be Friday (Oct. 15) afternoon. (Some may post sooner.)

The 2021 and 2022 checkwrite schedules can be found under Quick Links on the provider portal home page.
