As a reminder, the complete E-Payments Routing Directory data files, including Fedwire® and FedACH® Participant files, are no longer publicly available on FRBservices.orgSM as of December 9, 2018. The individual Search Fedwire Participants and Search FedACH Participant RDFIs lookups will remain. Complete E-Payments Routing Directory data files are available to credentialed users via the FedLine Web® and FedLine Advantage® Solutions.
To receive the complete data files, financial institutions with a FedLine® Solution may retrieve this data using one of the following options:
- Automating the download directly into their backend systems by setting up a script
- Manually downloading the data and using the generated .txt file
Non-banking institutions are advised to contact the financial institution they use to facilitate their Automated Clearing House (ACH) and wire payments to discuss available options. The financial institution may need to request an E-Payments Routing Directory download code from FedLine to authorize use of the data.
Financial institutions are encouraged to reach out to their corporate customers that currently utilize the directory to assist them with obtaining this data. Accurate routing data for payments improves the overall payment system and minimizes transaction errors, saving time and money for both financial institutions and their corporate customers. Additional information is available on the E-Payments Routing Directory Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page. More detailed FAQs are available in FedLine Home.
