The Federal Reserve Banks continually seek ways to help you mitigate payments risk across our services. With this goal in mind, we are happy to introduce the new FedPayments® Reporter Service for Check. This service will offer financial institutions new reporting capabilities for checks processed by the Federal Reserve Banks.
Receive the Check Advanced Notice Return Report
The Check Advanced Notice Return Report is available through the new FedPayments Reporter Service for Check. This report provides the Bank of First Deposit (BOFD) with advance notice of return items that will be delivered to it in an electronic return cash letter sent by the Federal Reserve Banks. This report enables the BOFD to assess the impact of a check return item earlier in the business day.
At the time the report is generated, it will contain a listing of returns available — received, validated and optionally repaired by the Federal Reserve Banks. The report is available in two formats:
- The non-image report will be offered in a Microsoft® Excel® (xlsx) format.
- The image version of the report will be available in PDF format and will include a black-and-white image of the front and back of each check.
