Wire Transfer

Need to transfer money quickly and securely to someone?

 

Use our wire service! Wire transfer is the fastest way to move funds quickly and securely across the country or around the world. Unlike automated clearing house (ACH), which provides next-day transfer of funds, wire transfers can provide same-day transfer if completed before the cut-off time.

Wires may be sent for any amount. Sky Federal Credit Union procedure requires that for wires of $2,500.00 or more you will need to come into a branch location to sign or have your signature notarized if outside the office.

Some fees apply – please refer to our Cost Recovery Schedule Disclosure

All wire recipients must pass through an Office of Foreign Assets (OFAC) screening. If there are any suspected OFAC violations the funds may be suspended or canceled per government regulations.
