What is a trace number?

If you need more information about a wire transfer, you’ll need to request an Input/Output Message Accountability (IMAD/OMAD) number from the originating bank.

Similar to trace numbers, IMAD/OMAD numbers are uniquely assigned to wire transfers that can be used to investigate and track these transfers. They’ll look something like this: YYYYMMDDXXXXXXXX012345.
