Setting Up External Accounts for Transfers

You can add accounts that you own at other FIs to your online banking profile and transfer funds externally. These functions depend on our financial institution’s settings and may not be available.

There are two types of external accounts: external transfer accounts and linked/aggregated accounts. This section details external transfer accounts. You can make transfers to and from external transfer accounts, but you can only view balances and transactions in linked/aggregated accounts.

When you connect the account, we make two small deposits of random amounts into your account at the other institution. When the deposits are complete, you enter and verify the amounts in either online banking or mobile banking. The deposits verify your ownership of the account and that any future transfers to or from that account will process correctly. The deposits should take fewer than five business days to process.

Note:  You can only request external transfer accounts held at domestic (United States and US territories) FIs that use American Bankers Association (ABA) routing numbers.
