Here's a Tip: It's All In A Name

Clearing the confusion over security wire instructions

If you’re trying to create security wire instructions on the selling system for Guarantor and MultiLender contracts and are finding the process confusing, you will now receive helpful tips on your screen that will tell you what to do.

Here is a summary of tips for the data fields that you need to enter when you are creating your wire instructions:

Data Field Name

Security Wire Instructions Name
This field is not part of the security wire instructions, but is the internal name designated by you, the Seller/Servicer, to help identify your security wire instructions. You may not use the same name more than once. Each name you use identifies one set of wiring instructions that you are assigning to your securities.

ABA Routing Number
This is your 9–digit American Banking Association (ABA)/Routing Number.

Abbreviated Bank Name
This is the receiving bank’s Telegraphic Abbreviation (Commonly referred to as Bank Short Name) associated with the ABA routing number. This name will automatically appear in this field when you enter the ABA #. The only way you can change this field is by changing the ABA #.

Third Party/FRB Sub-Account Name 
Only enter the Third Party/FRB Sub–Account name, which is usually either the account type or dealer abbreviation. Do not include any punctuation or special characters (examples: /, \, (, ), +, @, %).

Effective Date 
Enter the current date in this format: mm/dd/yyyy

Expiration Date 
Leave this field to the default option, “Indefinite,” unless there are specific reasons for entering an Expiration Date. To delete existing Security Wiring Instructions, enter an Expiration Date to inactivate the Wire Instructions and create new instructions if necessary.

Further Instructions
You may enter information that would follow the Third Party/FRB Sub-Account Name. For example: beneficiary name, beneficiary account number, or contact names and telephone numbers. Do not enter any punctuation. Do not use the Enter key at any time in this field; use only extra spaces to separate your entries.

You can make changes to the following fields before approval:

  • Security Wire Instructions Name
  • Third Party/FRB Sub Account Name
  • Effective Date
  • Expiration Date
  • Further Instructions

After approval, you can only make changes to the following fields:
