What is the Fedwire service?

Fedwire is a real-time gross settlement system operated by the Federal Reserve Banks that provides clearing and settlement services for high-value interbank transactions. It allows financial institutions to quickly and securely transfer large sums of money between each other in real-time.

How does Fedwire work and what is the process for a wire transfer?

In a Fedwire transfer, the sender's bank initiates the transfer and sends a payment instruction to the Federal Reserve Bank, which then forwards the payment instruction to the recipient's bank. The recipient's bank credits the funds to the recipient's account, and the transaction is complete. The entire process is completed in real time and the funds are transferred almost instantly. 

What are the advantages of using Fedwire for wire transfers?

There are several benefits of using Fedwire, including: 

  • Real-time, reliable and irrevocable transfers
  • Increased operational efficiency and reduced operational risk 
  • Ability to make large-value transfers 24/7/365 
  • Ability to send and receive transfers with financial institutions in the United States and abroad
  • Increased security through the use of Fedline, the Federal Reserve Banks' secure network for transmitting Fedwire transactions
How do I initiate a Fedwire transfer?

Fedwire transfers can be initiated through a financial institution's Fedline access device or through Fedline Web, the Federal Reserve Banks' secure web-based application. You must have a Fedwire account at a Federal Reserve Bank and be authorized by your financial institution to initiate Fedwire transfers. 

What types of transactions can be sent via Fedwire?

Fedwire is primarily used for large-value, time-critical transfers, such as the transfer of funds between financial institutions and government agencies. Fedwire can also be used for the transfer of securities and other financial instruments.
