ETA Final Notice

On September 25, 1998, Treasury issued 31 CFR Part 208, which provides, in part, that any individual who receives a Federal benefit, wage, salary, or retirement payment shall be eligible to open an account called an ETA at any federally insured financial institution that chooses to offer ETAs.

On November 23, 1998, Treasury published a notice describing proposed terms, conditions, and attributes of the ETA for comment in the Federal Register.

Based on the comments received, Treasury has developed a listing of required attributes and optional features for the ETA, which are the subject of this notice.

The Financial Agency Agreement that Treasury enters with each financial institution that elects to offer ETAs is an appendix to this notice.
