As part of our ongoing commitment to resiliency and security, the Federal Reserve Banks will be upgrading infrastructure components of our FedLine® Solutions and Check Services in the coming weeks. While the changes should be transparent to customers, testing opportunities will be available.

The upgrades are being installed in the customer test (CT)/pre-production environment and will be available for customer testing beginning August 27 through October 10, 2018. The production cutover is currently scheduled for October 15, 2018. All financial institutions that send or receive image cash letter (ICL) files directly within the check-processing system, as well as processors and other institutions that send or receive on behalf of other customers, are welcome to test. To test Check 21 ICL deposits or receipts, please refer to the customer testing procedures, which can be provided by your implementation manager if needed.

Updates on any modifications to the schedule will be provided closer to the October production cutover date. Please direct any questions or concerns to FedACH® and Check Services Customer Support at (877) 372-2457.
