The Fed - Federal Open Market Committee

We have posted the minutes from the #FOMC meeting held June 15-16, 2021: https://go.usa.gov/x6eY6

What is the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)? The FOMC is the body of the Federal Reserve System that sets national monetary policy. The FOMC makes all decisions regarding the conduct of open market operations, which affect the federal funds rate (the rate at which depository institutions lend to each other), the size and composition of the Federal Reserve's asset holdings, and communications with the public about the likely future course of monetary policy. Congress enacted legislation that created the FOMC as part of the Federal Reserve System in 1933 and 1935.

Protect Yourself from Mail Fraud and Scams

Have you received an official looking letter in the mail, supposedly from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York – or even the Chairman of the Federal Reserve – saying you’re owed a massive amount of money and all you have to do is call a number to give some vital information and pay a transfer fee before they release it to you?
DO NOT call that number!
It’s a scam! An attempt to steal your personal information.
If you think your personal information has been compromised, contact your bank and local law enforcement immediately.
