Updates and Deletions

The Participant database will be updated based on the Effective Date of the incoming transaction. If the effective date of the transmission record is equal to the current date then the data is effective immediately and the transmission data replaces the current data in the database. Transmission data with future Effective Dates will be stored in the MFPS II Participant database, replacing the current data when the future Effective Date becomes current.

Existing MFPS II participant data can be deleted from the database using the “delete” action indicator and identifying key elements.

Input and Output to the Participant database is currently single batch.  Participant database additions, updates, and deletions input by participants are accepted by NSCC between early morning and 8:15pm ET (cutoff)on business days. A daily output update file will be available to all participants late in the evening (around 9:00pm ET) on all NSCC business days. Rejected records will also be distributed by NSCC back to the originator at this time.

Additionally, NSCC will make available to recipients, upon request, files (for User Request Records submitted to NSCC) of MFPS Participant and Distribution Declaration information.

Retention of Data

NSCC will maintain historical data within the MFPS II database for a specified period of time.

MFPS II Fund participants can update and/or delete information contained in MFPS II. All transmittal records include key data elements, which will identify the data to be updated or deleted on the database.


Additions or update changes to the databases are used to add new information to the MFPS II databases or to identify and update existing information previously transmitted to NSCC.

This includes updates to current and future effective date information that already exists in the MFPS II Participant database.

In the MFPSII Distribution Declaration database, updates may be made for the existing projected and actual distribution information on the database.

Changes to the Fund/SERV® Security Master require an update be sent out to all recipients or holders of that specific security.

Changes to the Fund/SERV® Participant Master require updates be sent out for all Fund/SERV® securities that default to the Fund/SERV® Participant. This must be done to keep recipients current with Fund/SERV® changes.


Deletions are used to remove information from the MFPS II databases.

Currently effective and future effective information for MFPS II Participant information can be deleted by use of the “delete” action indicator field on the individual records.

For MFPSII Distribution Declaration, projected and actual distribution information can be deleted in the same manner.
