Must Use Right Bank Checks After Sept. 1 A notice has been issued to all banks that Federal Reserve Banks will not handle checks received without magnetic ink numbers, effective Sept. 1. Checks and drafts deposited with Federal Reserve banks will not be handled through regular bank collection channels if received without the magnetic ink (M1CR) transit number. The new electronic processing demands such magnetic ink coding. To avoid delays of special handling of checks, only printed checks which your bank furnishes should be used. Do not use "changed" checks or customer's draft forms. You may be required to pay a service charge for collecting a check which cannot be processed electronically by Federal Reserve banks. According to William Conn, president of The Security State Bank, a "changed" check is one on which the printed name of the bank is crossed out and the name of another bank is substituted. After Sept. 1, such a practice will be impracticable. In the bottom left corner of each check, whether it be a personalized or counter check, a certain number appears in magnetic ink. It is a number which facilitates routing checks through proper channels. Each bank has its magnetic routing symbol, thus, the user of the check cannot change the name of the bank printed oa the check. With the original deposit and opening of an account, the new customer receives the free-50, a book of checks with the name of the customer printed on each. After these checks are used, additional personalized checks may be obtained through banks.
