Use our Fedwire Discount Calculator Tool (xls) (Updated October 2020) to determine the impact the Fedwire Funds incentive discount will have on a customer's bill.
1 The incentive discounts apply to the volume that exceeds 60 percent of a customer’s historic benchmark volume. Historic benchmark volume is based on a customer’s average daily activity over the previous five calendar years. If a customer has fewer than five full calendar years of previous activity, its historic benchmark volume is based on its daily activity for as many full calendar years of data as are available. If a customer has less than one year of past activity, then the customer qualifies automatically for incentive discounts for the year. The applicable incentive discounts are as follows: $0.672 for transfers up to 14,000; $0.200 for transfers 14,001 to 90,000; and $0.132 for transfers over 90,000.
