External Funds Transfers & Express Transfers

Use External Funds Transfers & Express Transfers to help you move funds in and out of the Credit Union.  They can be found behind the Online Services tab in Online Banking.

How are External Funds Transfers & Express Transfers different from Bill Pay or Wire Transfers?  In order to use it, you need to know the other institution's ABA/Routing number as well as your account number at that institution.  As a result, you normally wouldn't use External Funds Transfers to pay bills.  Instead, use it to move money to and from your accounts at other institutions, such as your brokerage account, another bank account, or a minor's account.

You'll need to set up all accounts you want to move money between, including your Star One Checking or Savings accounts.  We'll "pre-note" each account to ensure that you are the owner by making a small trial deposit and then a trial withdrawal from each account at each financial institution.  You enter these amounts to activate each of your accounts within the External Funds Transfer product.  Then you can start moving money.
