The Federal Reserve System, also known as the “Fed,” is the central banking system of the United States. It was created in 1913 by the Federal Reserve Act in response to a series of financial panics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Fed is responsible for implementing monetary policy in the United States and for regulating the country’s financial system.

The Fed is made up of three key components: the Board of Governors, the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The Board of Governors is a seven-member board of appointed officials who oversee the operations of the Fed. The Federal Reserve Banks are located in major cities across the country and serve as the central bank for their respective regions. The FOMC is the main policy-making body of the Fed and is responsible for setting interest rates and making decisions about monetary policy.

One of the main functions of the Fed is to regulate the supply of money in the economy. It does this through a variety of tools, including setting the discount rate, which is the rate at which banks can borrow money from the Fed, and conducting open market operations, which involve buying and selling government securities in the open market to influence the supply of money. The Fed also regulates the financial system by setting and enforcing rules for banks and other financial institutions, and by providing financial services to the government and the public.

In addition to its regulatory and monetary policy functions, the Fed also plays a key role in the payment system of the United States. It operates and maintains the infrastructure for electronic payment systems, including the Automated Clearing House (ACH) and the Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) system.

The Fed is an independent government agency, meaning it is not subject to political interference. However, it is accountable to Congress and the public, and its decisions can have significant impacts on the economy. Overall, the Fed plays a crucial role in maintaining the stability of the financial system and the health of the economy.

We provide debt resolution services. Our clients who make all monthly program payments save approximately 40 – 50% of their enrolled debt (average of 43%) upon successful program completion, before program fees. Fees are based on a percentage of your enrolled debt at the time of starting the program and range from 15%-25% of your enrolled debt. Programs range from 20-48 months. Clients must save at least 25% of each debt due to an enrolled creditor before a bona fide settlement offer will be made. On average, clients receive their first settlement within 4-7 months of enrollment and approximately every 3-6 months thereafter from when the prior debt was settled. Not all Clients complete the program. Estimates are based on prior results and may not match your results. We cannot guarantee that your debts will be resolved for a specific amount or percentage or within a specific timeframe. We do not assume your debts, make monthly payments to creditors or provide tax, bankruptcy, accounting, legal advice or credit repair services. Our program is not available in all states; fees may vary by state. Some programs may be offered through The Law Firm of Higbee & Associates d/b/a Advantage Law. The use of debt resolution services will likely adversely affect your credit. You may be subject to collections or lawsuits by creditors or collectors. Your outstanding debt may increase from the accrual of fees and interest. Any amount of debt forgiven by your creditors may be subject to income tax. Clients may withdraw from the program at any time without penalty and receive all funds from their dedicated account, other than funds earned by the company or fees paid to third-party service providers, as may be applicable. Read and understand all program materials prior to enrolling. Certain types of debts are not eligible for enrollment. Some creditors are not eligible for enrollment because they do not negotiate with debt relief companies. To determine the offers you may be eligible for, Americor conducts a “soft credit pull.” This credit pull does not impact your credit score, creditworthiness, or ability to obtain credit from other sources. The soft pull is not a tradeline entry, it does not report against your score and will only take a few minutes.
