Online Banking FAQs

An “ACH transfer” is a fancy word for an electronic transfer. This can be anything from a scheduled transfer from one of your other bank accounts to a recurring debit payment made by your car insurance company. Typically any time you initiate a transaction electronically using your account number and bank routing number, this is considered an ACH (“Automated Clearing House”) transfer.

A wire transfer is another way of sending money electronically and is typically initiated through a financial institution. When initiating a wire transfer, you are asked to provide your account information, as well as, the recipient’s account information (account number, bank routing number, recipient’s address). Wire transfers allow people and businesses to send money in a quick fashion. Unlike other money transfer services that have lower limits, wire transfers allow large sums of money to be sent. A fee may be charged for wire transfers. Consult our current fee schedule for applicable fees.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
