All of the Federal Reserve’s wire and ACH systems are down
All of the services available through the Federal Reserve’s online portal have been down for more than an hour.
According to the Federal Reserve Bank Services’ website, the bank is experiencing a disruption in its account services, central bank, Check 21, check adjustments, FedACH, FedCash, FedLine Advantage, FedLine Command, FedLine Direct, FedLine Web, Fedwire Funds, Fedwire Securities, and National Settlement — all services typically available — which started at 6:18 PM UTC today. In addition, all the access solutions that the Fed offers, with the exception of FedMail, are also offline.
Washington Post reporter Rachel Leah Siegel reportedly received an alert from the Fed saying its staff were “currently investigating a disruption to multiple services” and would “continue to provide updates as soon as they are available.”
“A Federal Reserve operational error resulted in disruption of service in several business lines,” said Jim Strader from the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. “We are restoring services and are communicating with all Federal Reserve Financial Services customers about the status of operations.”
