Webinar on Check Sample Survey

Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Talk About Payments Webinar

2018 Check Sample Survey Findings

Since 2000, check payments in the United States have declined at an annual rate of nearly 6 percent. Despite the evolution of payments choices over the last 20 years, U.S. businesses and consumers alike continue to use checks for all kinds of reasons. The 2018 Check Sample Survey (CSS), recently released by the Atlanta Fed, reports check use by businesses and consumers based on a sample of checks the Federal Reserve cleared in 2018.

In the next episode of our Talk About Payments (TAP) webinar series, Retail Payments Risk Forum team members will delve into CSS results, discussing, among other findings, payers, payees, and purpose of checks both paid and returned. We will also talk about the reasons for return, including possible fraud. We encourage financial institutions, retailers, payments processors, law enforcement, academia, and other payments system stakeholders to participate. You will be able to submit questions during the webinar. Please pass this invitation along to any colleagues you believe will be interested in attending.

The webinar will take place on August 27 from 2 to 3 p.m. (ET). To participate in the webinar, you must register in advance (there is no charge).
