WHAT IS A WIRE?
Wire transfer is a method of transferring money from one entity
to another. A wire transfer can be made from one entity's bank account
to the other entity's bank account. Wire transfers are an option
when you cannot send a check or cash and you have to send the money
quickly. You can send a wire most anywhere in the world. Bank-to-bank
wire transfer is considered the safest international payment method.
Each account holder must have a proven identity. Chargeback is unlikely,
although wires can be recalled. Information contained in wires is
transmitted securely through encrypted communications methods.
WHAT DOES IT COST TO SEND
If you are receiving an incoming wire, please contact us! Please notify our office when the wire will be coming, the amount of the wire and where you want it deposited (savings or checking).
Before beginning the process
of transferring money by wire, you should have the following information:
1. How much money do you wish to transfer? When transferring from
a credit union account, make sure that you have sufficient funds
to cover the transaction, including any service fees.
2. Name, address, telephone number of who will receive the money
you are sending.
3. The bank account routing and transit number and account number
of the person receiving the money in addition to their financial
institution’s name, phone number and address.
4. The wire routing number of the financial institution that holds
the account the money is being sent to. It is important to verify
the wire routing and transit number of the financial institution.
Some financial institutions have routing and transit numbers set
up specifically for wires only!
If you need to send a wire or have an incoming wire, please call us for specific wiring instructions or stop by the credit union branch!
