Abbreviated as IMAD/OMAD, the Input/Output Message Accountability Data (wire transfers) is a unique number assigned to each FedWire payment (processed through the Federal Reserve Bank Service). An IMAD/OMAD number can be used to investigate and track wire transfers.
To put it simply, this number is generated to track your wire transfer.
Your IMAD/OMAD information consists of this information in the following format:
IMAD/OMAD number: YYYYMMDD ABCDXXXX 012345
- Wire transfer date: YYYYMMDD or MMDD
- Source identifier: 8 Alpha or Alpha-Numeric characters
- Sequence number: 6 digits
Where can I find my IMAD/OMAD number?
Your bank will be able to provide you with this information, after the funds have been wired.
If a bank representative is unable to provide you with this, you may have to reach out to the bank manager or the wire department for assistance.
