My organization does not currently use FedLine Web® or does not have access to FedLine Web

You must sign up for FedLine Web in order to access FedCash Access Manager. FedLine Web provides your organization with flexible and powerful access to information through a secure Federal Reserve Bank website.

An End User Authorization Contact (EUAC) must submit a Subscriber request via the EUAC Center within FedLine Home for each individual who will be authorized to access FedLine Web services and applications.

Pricing information for all FedLine Solutions is available on our Service Fees page.

NOTE: FedCash Services is free to customers that use FedLine Web for FedCash Services only.

Once you have successfully signed up for FedLine Web, you can sign up for FedCash Access Manager by following the steps outlined below.

Step 1 — Determine if you need to re-credential your Subscribers

The most frequent question from current FedLine Web customers is if organizations have to re-credential all current FedLine Web Subscribers when setting up FedCash Access Manager. If your Subscribers are currently credentialed under one ABA, you do not need to re-credential. If your Subscribers are credentialed under multiple ABAs, you will need to re-credential each Subscriber under one "Administrative ABA" to get the most benefit from FedCash Access Manager. Having Subscribers credentialed under one Administrative ABA allows for greater control by an organization's Administrator for restricting Subscriber access to a specific endpoint for placing cash orders/deposits or viewing cash reports.

Step 2 — Identify an Administrative ABA Number

To allow your organization the most efficient use of FedCash Access Manager, we encourage you to select one Administrative ABA number for which all ABAs and endpoints will be linked.

  • A current ABA that has the most Subscribers assigned to it
  • The ABA assigned to your organization's corporate headquarters
  • The ABA assigned to your organization's billing ABA

Step 3 — Identify an Employee for the Administrator Access Level

To use FedCash Access Manager, your organization will need to select an employee to perform the Administrator role. The Administrator will have the ability to restrict other employees' access to a specific endpoint and/or to a group of select endpoints across ABAs for placing cash orders/deposits or viewing cash reports.

NOTE: It's recommended that you select at least one back-up Administrator for contingency purposes.

Step 4 — Request Credentials

An End User Authorization Contact (EUAC) from your organization should submit a Subscriber request via the EUAC Center within FedLine Home.

Step 5 — Obtain Subscriber Credential Components

Upon the Federal Reserve Banks' completion of a Subscriber request, a passphrase will be emailed to the Subscriber and a FedLine security token will be mailed to the EUAC who submitted the request.

Step 6 — Request ABA Links

Once credentials have been issued, your organization will contact the local Cash Office to request that all ABAs be linked (in the order for/order by table) to the Administrative ABA.

After the links are complete, the Administrator can begin restricting access (see step 7) to Subscribers.

NOTE: Once the ABAs have been linked, any Subscriber with a new or old credential will be able to order for all ABAs until the previous credential has been deleted and the Administrator has restricted access on new credentials.

Step 7 — Restrict access to Subscribers

The Administrator can restrict the endpoints a Subscriber can order for.

Step 8 — Distribute FedLine security tokens to new Subscribers

After the Administrator has restricted Subscriber access, the EUAC will distribute FedLine security tokens to the Subscribers.

NOTE: Tokens can be distributed before access is restricted; however, this is not recommended.

Step 9 — Delete Subscriber credentials

Your organization's EUACs are responsible for requesting the deletion of Subscriber credentials when the credentials are no longer needed. Requests to delete credentials should be submitted via the EUAC Center within FedLine Home.

Step 10 — Begin using FedCash Access Manager

For Subscribers, the ordering process works as it did before. Subscribers may have more or fewer endpoints visible to them depending on parameters of their new credential.
