To transfer money to another Chartway member, simply follow the steps below:
Federal Reserve Board Regulation D is a federal law that says you can't make more than six (6) withdrawals or transfers per month out of your savings account. This includes overdraft transfers, pre-authorized ACH debits, phone transfers, online banking and telephone banking transfers.
External Transfers are an easy way for you to transfer money to and from other financial institutions and your Chartway checking, savings, and select loan accounts within Online & Mobile Banking.
To complete an external transfer, follow the steps below:
Chartway Federal Credit Union cannot send or receive a wire that utilizes a SWIFT code.
Each transaction will be rounded up individually, totaled, and then transferred to the savings account of your choice.
Here's an example:
For the example above, the total round up for all amounts is $2.59, which will be transferred to the member's savings account
If you have a multiplier set up, we will multiply by the day's total and then transfer to your savings account. Using the above example, if you have a multiplier set to 3x, ($2.59 x 3) would transfer over a total of $7.77
The savings will remain in the savings account and not transferred back to the checking account.
No. To protect you from this happening, we will not make a SimpleSavings transfer on any day your checking account does not have the available balances to cover the transfer. Please know, your purchases will be charged to your checking account, but a SimpleSavings transfer will not be made in this event.
Give us a call at (800) 678-8765, visit a branch, or connect using Video Banking to enroll.
