Circular
Board Announces Restructuring of Check Processing in Sixth District
September 9, 2008
Circular No. 11984

The Federal Reserve Board has approved amendments to Appendix A of Regulation CC that reflect the restructuring of the Federal Reserve's check processing operations in the Sixth District.

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

As of November 15, 2008, the Jacksonville branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta no longer will process checks, and banks currently served by that office will be reassigned to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

To ensure that the information in Appendix A accurately describes the structure of check processing operations within the Federal Reserve System, the final rule deletes the reference in Appendix A to the Jacksonville branch office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and reassigns the routing numbers listed thereunder to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

To coincide with the effective date of the underlying check processing changes, the amendments are effective November 15, 2008.
