The National Settlement Service is a multilateral settlement service owned and operated by the Federal Reserve Banks. The service is offered to depository institutions that settle for participants in clearinghouses, financial exchanges and other clearing and settlement groups. Settlement agents, acting on behalf of those depository institutions in a settlement arrangement, electronically submit settlement files to the Federal Reserve Banks. Files are processed on receipt, and entries are automatically posted to the depository institutions' Federal Reserve Bank accounts. The Federal Reserve Banks recently announced readiness to operate earlier than 7:30 a.m. ET through an advance request process. Read the announcement for the full details. Request that we contact you regarding your interest in the National Settlement Service.
