In response to customer feedback, the Federal Reserve updated its procedures for submitting deposits of contaminated currency. The updated procedures are available on the Contaminated Currency and Coin page of FRBservices.org. In addition, the FedCash® Services Contaminated Currency Notification Form (CASH-04) and Deposit Visual Reference Guide were updated to reflect the changes.
Effective immediately, FedCash customers and contracted agencies that prepare their deposits for shipment to the Federal Reserve must adhere to the revised procedures and use the updated form to notify the Fed before delivering contaminated currency.
The Federal Reserve is also updating the packaging tutorial video, and we will notify you when it is available on the Contaminated Currency and Coin page.
If you have questions, please contact your local FedCash Services District Contacts.
