Frequently Asked Questions

Eligible external accounts include Checking Accounts, Savings Accounts, Money Market Accounts and Investment Accounts held at online brokerage firms (dependent upon firm's requirements).

Once in the External Transfers tab, click "Add a New Account". Enter the account type, a nickname, routing number and account number for your external account. After clicking "add", you will have to verify your external account either by logging into that account for real-time verification, or through Trial Deposit verification. With the Trial Deposit method, a low value payment will be credited and debited to your external account. You will then verify your external account by confirming the amount of the payment; this process takes 2-3 days.
