About the PFC

The Philadelphia Financial Center (PFC) was established on November 16, 1934, Under Executive Order 6166 (June 1933) as one of 27 consolidated disbursing offices for the Department of Treasury.

Over the years, PFC has served many functions, including the disbursement of certified public monies on behalf of Federal agencies.

PFC currently operates as the consolidated nationwide service center for all post payment activities, using a variety of methods, techniques, and activities to ensure that post-payment processing is performed at an optimum level. These activities include business analytics, process mapping, and fraud detection and prevention.

PFC engages external stakeholders to gain knowledge and information to help ensure integrity in the payment lifecycle.

These vital activities enable the Bureau of the Fiscal Service to process $15 billion in Fiscal Year 2017 in claims, returns and cancellations on behalf of agencies.  PFC also functions as the backup site for payment disbursement and print production.
