External Transfer FAQ

As security enhancements continue to be an ongoing focus and priority for TLCCU, we require verification procedures for Online Banking external transfer account setups. (Formally called Financial to Financial Transfers)

When a new financial institution is set up, our system will generate a debit and credit for a random amount less than $1.00 at your other Financial Institution, then you must verify this transaction amount in Online Banking before scheduling any transfers.
Select transfers from the menu.
