Circular
Board Announces Restructuring of Check Processing Operations in Ninth, Tenth Districts
August 14, 2007
Circular No. 11887

The Federal Reserve Board has announced amendments to Appendix A of Regulation CC that reflect the restructuring of the Federal Reserve's check processing operations in the Ninth and Tenth Districts. These amendments are part of a series of amendments to Appendix A associated with the previously announced restructuring of the Reserve Banks' check processing operations.

Appendix A provides a routing number guide that helps depository institutions determine the maximum permissible hold periods for most deposited checks.

As of October 20, 2007, the Helena branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis no longer will process checks, and banks currently served by that office will be reassigned to the Denver branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
