Financial Management Service

Who are we?


The Financial Management Service (FMS) is one of 10 bureaus of the United States Department of the Treasury. FMS serves as the federal government's financial manager. Its mission is to develop and manage federal financial systems to ensure that the government's cash flows efficiently, effectively, and securely.

What do we do?

FMS supports other federal agencies by serving as the government's primary disbursements and collections agent, accountant and reporter of financial information, and collector of delinquent federal debt. FMS performs many of the fundamental cash management functions that were delegated to Treasury when Congress created the Department in 1789.

Each year FMS disburses more than $1.6 trillion issuing more than 982 million non-defense payments to recipients, such as those who receive Social Security, IRS tax refunds, and Veterans benefits. FMS is also responsible for administering the world's largest collections system, collecting more than $3 trillion annually. These collections include individual and corporate tax deposits, customs duties, loan repayments, fines, and proceeds from leases. FMS maintains a network of about 10,000 financial institutions to collect this revenue. FMS is also responsible for managing the collection of non-tax debt owed to the government. FMS also oversees the federal government's central accounting and reporting system, keeping track of its monetary assets and liabilities.
