Create A New Transfer

Below are the step-by-step instructions that can assist you to process a funds transfer into or out of your personal saving account.





You can make a one-time transfer or set up recurring transfers – the choice is yours. It may take up to two business days before transfers appear at your external bank account. Transfers will not be processed on weekends or holidays.





  Step 1: Set Up Your Transfer


Log in to Savings and click Transfers from the navigation and Create a New Transfer. You will be asked for the following information:


  • TransferAmount
  • From and To Account information (drop-down menu)
  • Requested Start Date: if scheduled date is a non-business day the transfer will occur on the next business day
  • Frequency (defaults to 'one time'): if set to a frequency of every one or two weeks, these will occur on the same day of the week; less frequent options will repeat on the same date of the month
  • End Date: if not set for recurring transfers, the transfer will recur indefinitely





Step 1



  Step 2: Verify Your Transfer


You will review your transfer summary and have an opportunity to edit it prior to submitting.


Please note, if you withdraw your full balance and do not close your account, accrued interest from your current statement cycle may be posted after your transfer is completed and remain in your account until withdrawn separately.





Step 2



  Step 3: Confirm Your Transfer


Your transfer is all set, and will process on the date(s) provided in the on-screen confirmation. You may print this page for your records. There’s nothing more you need to do – we’ll take it from here.

Important Reminder


Your electronic transfer request will leave our bank and be reflected in your Savings balance on the date listed. However, the external banks generally take 1-3 days to reflect the transfer on their system. Please see FAQs below for more specific timing on the movement of your funds. On the day of processing, transfers are subject to the availability of sufficient funds.
