Along with the other Reserve Banks and the Board of Governors, the Richmond Fed serves an important role in the payments system. We utilize our broad understanding of payments, technological expertise, and ability to forge strong partnerships with private and public sector participants.


A brief introduction to the Fed’s role in the payments system. Learn more about the Fed’s vital role through our 30-minute Payments 101 module.


We work to ensure our financial system is operating safely and effectively by supplying financial institutions with currency and making sure it’s not worn, torn or counterfeit and there’s enough currency available in the financial system to meet the needs of banks and their customers. We also provide secure and efficient methods to transfer your funds through our nation’s financial system.
