To use the Online Banking wires service, you must enroll in Enhanced Account Protection (1) if you're a business that doesn't use Dual Authorization, or (2) if you're a consumer. EAP is a free internal security tool for wire transfers and certain other types of Online Banking transactions. When your account is first enabled for wire transfers, you'll be prompted to enroll in EAP the next time you login to Online Banking (unless you are a business with Dual Authorization). Customers using EAP have seven days to enable the service to avoid cancellation of the wire application.

Business Online Banking customers have the option of using Dual Authorization instead of EAP. Dual Authorization requires two individuals to complete a transaction as an internal security tool for business accounts.

Domestic wire transfers (i.e., wires that are sent from one location within the US to a different location in the US) are available in Online Banking. To make an International (outside the US) wire transfer, you need to visit a branch location or call the Central Wires department. To call Central Wires, you will need to have a Wire Transfer Agreement already in place.   

Transmission of Federal Tax Wire Payments isn't permitted through Online Banking. To make a Federal Wires payment, you need to visit a branch location or call our Central Wires department. Business customers have the option to enroll in ACH Direct Deposit and Tax Payments as an alternative method of payment.

Once the bank has received your “Wire Application for Online Banking” form, allow three business days for processing. Once processing is completed, you'll have access to the wires functionality within Online Banking. All Online Banking wires are subject to the terms and conditions attached to that Wire Application.

There is no limit to the number of wires you can make through Online Banking.

If applying through Online Banking Electronic Enrollment you can set a transfer amount up to $50,000 per day. If you need to transfer more, you'll need to print and complete the application and take it to any of our branch locations and sign it there.

Yes, you have the option to set lower limits. To do this, simply specify a lower limit when completing your “Wire Application for Online Banking.” A new Wire Application is needed if you wish to change an existing limit.

The standard wire transfer fee that has been disclosed to you in connection with the deposit account you'll be using will also apply to wires transfers made using Online Banking. (Note: lower fees or fee waivers applicable to certain accounts or relationships may not apply to wires originated through Online Banking.)  

Wire transfer functionality can be found in Online Banking under the Payments tab. If this functionality is not enabled, you'll see a Wire Application link under the Tab menu.

An existing agreement for sending wires by other means (e.g. calling Central Wires) will remain in place for those wires, but the Wire Agreement for Online Banking will govern any wires you send via Online Banking. To enable the wire functionality in Online Banking, you'll need to download and complete the Wire Application for Online Banking. Then, submit by mail or take it to any of our convenient branch locations.
