Notice 04-16
TO: The Chief Operating Officer of each
financial institution and others concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District
Introducing New Standard Cash Letter Forms on the Web
As part of the Federal Reserve Bank’s ongoing efforts to improve check processing
services, we have developed a series of standard cash letter forms available on the Financial
Services web site beginning today, March 31, 2004. The new forms can be downloaded or
completed online at Select “Standard Forms” from the left-hand navigation bar.
The forms include standard formats and terminology to help expedite payments
processing nationwide. We have incorporated several elements of the current online cash letter
forms, plus user-friendly technology that will make the new forms efficient and straightforward
to use.
An interactive learning tool for the cash letter forms also will be available at The tool gives a preview of each form, allows you to try out a form, and
provides a comparison of District-specific and standardized terminology.
We are pleased to offer the new cash letter forms and believe that you will find them
easy to use in your daily operations. If you have a supply of printed cash letter forms on hand,
you may deplete the supply before changing to the new standard forms. We also will continue to
provide our District cash letter forms in hard copy by request.

For additional copies, bankers and others are encouraged to use one of the following toll-free numbers in contacting the Federal
