Reminder: Fees and payment system enhancements for 2024

The recently announced pricing changes for 2024, which took effect Jan. 2, support Federal Reserve Financial Services’ (FRFS) plans for the new year and 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.

Upcoming enhancements

FRFS is improving the payments system in 2024 by developing and supporting new products and initiatives, including:

  • 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 suite of information services and expanding use of application programming interfaces (APIs).
  • We are bringing greater transparency and efficiency to the cash supply chain with the FedCash® E-Manifest Service, now available to all financial institutions and their servicing armored carriers that work directly with the Fed.
  • We will continue to maximize the accessibility of instant payments by building on the successful July launch of the FedNow® Service.
