[Ed. – Uhh… Multiple outlets are reporting this. Seems to have started in the last hour. *UPDATE*: Services being brought back online.]
The Federal Reserve’s system that allows financial institutions to send money back and forth electronically went down Wednesday afternoon.
The interruption impacted multiple Fed services, including its pivotal automated clearinghouse system, which connects depository and related institutions send electronic credit and debt transfers.
Along with the Fed ACH service, other systems impacted included the Check 21, FedCash, Fedwire and the national settlement service.
“The Federal Reserve Bank staff is currently investigating a disruption to multiple services. We will continue to provide updates as soon as they are available,” the Fed said in a statement.
