What is an IMAD/OMAD number?

IMAD/OMAD means Input/Output Message Accountability Data and it is a mandatory unique number given to each FedWire payment when using the Federal Reserve Bank Service, and can be used to investigate and track wire transfers.

What this means for you is that it is a unique reference number for your wire transfer that can be used to track it.

An IMAD/OMAD number will be required if we have to reach out to our funding partner.

The IMAD/OMAD is a combination of date, source identifier (alpha-numeric), and sequence number in the following format:

Source Identifier 8 Alpha or Alpha-Numeric characters
Sequence Number 6 digits

How can I get the IMAD/OMAD numbers?

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.


Note: If you have received this IMAD/OMAD number from Kraken Support for your returned deposit or for withdrawal, please provide this information to your bank to help locate the funds that are destined to be credited to your bank account.
