The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia helps formulate and implement monetary policy, supervises banks and bank and savings and loan holding companies, and provides financial services to depository institutions and the federal government.

It is one of the 12 regional Reserve Banks that, together with the Board of Governors in Washington, D.C., make up the Federal Reserve System. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank serves eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and Delaware.

Key Statistics

  • Number of employees: 900
  • Total bank holding companies, savings & loan holding companies, and state member banks supervised: 169 
  • Currency processed: $22.8 billion
  • Coin paid and received: $123.8 million


To further protect its independence, the Federal Reserve receives no government appropriations from Congress. The Fed finances its activities mainly with the interest earned from the government securities it has acquired to implement monetary policy. Other sources of income include revenue received from providing services to financial institutions, interest on loans to depository institutions, and interest on foreign currency investments. Any earnings the Fed makes above the cost of operations are turned over to the U.S. Treasury.
