Master Account

A Master Account is the record of financial rights and obligations of an Account Holder and the Administrative Reserve Bank (or any other Reserve Bank maintaining a Master Account identified in Operating Circular 1) with respect to each other, where opening, intraday, and closing balances are determined. A Master Account is identified by a Primary nine-digit Routing Transit Number (RTN).

U.S. branches and agencies of the same foreign bank and Edge and Agreement Corporations will have a single Master Account for each group of offices located in the same state and same Federal Reserve District. However, the U.S. branches and agencies of a foreign bank and the offices of an Edge or Agreement corporation can simulate a single Master Account nationwide by passing required reserve balances through a single Correspondent.
