Federal Reserve launches FedPayments Insights Service

Tuesday 20 September 2022 14:30 CET | News

The Federal Reserve has announced the launching of a new service to help financial institutions to track trends for payments settled through its FedACH service.

The FedPayments Insights Service is a business and analytics tool that generates reports on a financial institution’s payments settled through the FedACH, the Federal Reserve Banks’ Automated Clearing House. As more payments are being processed through the ACH system, it’s important for financial institutions to have access to a tool that helps them analyse their ACH payment trends and inform on any operational, strategic, or risk management decisions.

How does it work?

The FedPayments Insights Service aims to offer a comprehensive and easy-to-access view of an institution’s daily and historical FedACH activity, complete with its government and commercial transactions, for increased transparency and clearance. 

The service can be accessed through the FedLine Web and FedLine Advantage Solutions and will track all transactions settled through FedACH for individual originators, single routing transit numbers (RTN) or family of RTNs. Moreover, the service can generate visual reports and data on payment trends and activity, including volumes and return rates. Historical data can be accessed for to two years or six years prior and provides detailed information for two years, as well as summarised information for the past six years.

FedPayments can be used either as a completement to the FedPayments Reporter Service or independently.
