Test Access to the Discount Window for Contingency and Liquidity



The Federal Reserve Bank's primary credit program, available through our Discount Window, may be a part of your institution's liquidity management or contingency plan. Institutions are encouraged to periodically test their ability to borrow at the Discount Window to ensure that there are no unexpected impediments or complications. If your institution already has the Discount Window in your plans, you can easily complete a test by calling the Credit Risk Management Department at 1-800-333-2987 and requesting a small, one-day loan.

If the Discount Window is not a part of your institution's liquidity management or contingency plan and you are interested in learning more about establishing a Discount Window relationship, including necessary documentation and collateral requirements, please contact the Credit and Risk Management Department at 1-800-333-2987. Additional information can also be found on the Federal Reserve System Discount Window website.
