Announcing 2024 Federal Reserve Financial Services fees and payment system enhancements
November 17, 2023
Federal Reserve Financial Services’ (FRFS) plans for 2024 reflect our continued strategic focus on providing customers with a fully integrated product suite that offers speed, resilience and choice. We are laser-focused on our mission of delivering a trusted and contemporary payment system that works for everyone.
- We will continue to simplify technology platforms and provide richer data and flexibility to our customers while facilitating the Fedwire® Funds Service’s March 10, 2025 implementation of the ISO® 20022 format.
- We are enhancing our range of services that can assist our customers in detecting anomalous payment patterns, and we are expanding use of application programming interfaces (APIs).
- FRFS is also bringing greater transparency and efficiency to the cash supply chain with the broad availability of our FedCash® E-Manifest Service.
- Additionally, we will continue to maximize the accessibility of instant payments by building on the successful July launch of the FedNow® Service.
Reflecting on these investments and generally higher operating costs, we are slightly increasing the prices of some services and leaving others unchanged in 2024. The impact on your financial institution will depend on your product mix and volume. We look forward to realizing future enhancements to the U.S. payment system alongside our customers.
Below, see a high-level overview of 2024 product fee changes and strategic service enhancements. More details on specific changes can be found on the Service Fees pages on FRBservices.org®. All pricing changes will be effective January 2, 2024.
We value the trust you place in FRFS and the relationship we have with you. We look forward to providing you with efficient, reliable payment services and outstanding customer service in the upcoming year.
