Outgoing Wire Transfer

We make it simple to wire money to just about any financial institution inside the U.S.

Outgoing Wire Transfers

To send a wire, you will need to complete a Wire Transfer Authorization form. We recommend that you ask for written instructions from the receiving beneficiary or financial institution prior to completing the form. Incorrect or missing information may delay your wire transfer. Be cautious if you are corresponding via email and there is a sudden change in instructions, contact the beneficiary via a known phone number to verify the change.

  • All wire transfer requests must be accompanied by a legible copy of a primary and secondary proof of identity document.
  • DFCU Financial will not execute a wire transfer received remotely without a call back to a telephone number on record to confirm the wire and verify all transfer details.
  • Wire transfer authorization requests may also be made in person at any DFCU Financial branch location.
  • Wire transfers are processed Monday-Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm EST. Wire transfers requested after processing hours or on the weekend will be processed on the next business day.
  • A fee will be assessed for an outgoing wire transfer; see DFCU Financial’s current Fee Schedule.
  • We cannot guarantee that the funds will be posted by the receiving institution the same day of the wire transfer.
  • Additional fees may be assessed by the receiving bank, or if applicable any intermediary banks. DFCU Financial cannot determine if fees will be charged.
  • Confirmation may be sent, upon request, to the email address on record once the wire is sent.
