The Federal Reserve Board announced on August 5 that the Federal Reserve Banks will build and operate the FedNow Service (Off-site), a new interbank 24x7x365 real-time gross settlement service with integrated clearing functionality to support faster payments in the United States. The Board is seeking public comments on all aspects of the FedNow Service through a Federal Register notice.

While the current notice doesn’t outline specific questions to respond to, we invite comments on all aspects of the FedNow Service and left it open-ended to provide you with the latitude to do so. Need help navigating the notice? Consider these sections:

  • Section V.C. - Features under consideration as part of the core service upon initial implementation.
  • Section V.C. - Ancillary features that may or may not be available at initial implementation.
