The Federal Reserve said on its website that the processing problem at its private sector automated clearing house operator had “resulted in the masking of certain data elements from a number of ACH entries.” These items “could not be processed by the receiving depository financial institutions” due to the issue, according to the alert.
“All Federal Reserve financial services are operating normally,” the Federal Reserve said in the afternoon.

Clearing House spokesperson Greg MacSweeney told FOX Business it “encountered an ACH processing issue that affected less than 1% of daily ACH volume in the United States.”
The Clearing House manages EPN, the payments network that the Federal Reserve has indicated has encountered the problem. EPN “essentially handles half of U.S. ACH trade volume,” according to its website.
“TCH is working with financial institutions whose customers have been impacted,” MacSweeney continued.
