FedACH Services Participation Agreement

FedACH Services Participation Agreement

Number Form Links
ACH-Instructions FedACH Services Participation Agreement
This new FedACH Participation Agreement is effective as of March 3, 2017. Existing agreements currently in place with the Federal Reserve Banks will remain effective regardless of this change, and new agreements will not need to be re-submitted.
Before a financial institution begins to originate or receive FedACH items through the Federal Reserve Banks, a FedACH Participation Agreement must be completed and signed by an authorized individual at the institution. If a financial institution has updates to an existing agreement, only applicable portions should be completed and signed. The Agreement gives the Federal Reserve Banks authorization to direct items and settlement for FedACH participants.
