Wire Transfers are a safe and easy way to move money.

Wire transfers safely move money between accounts and different financial institutions. Harvard FCU accepts incoming Wire Transfers, and collected funds may be wired out domestically or internationally.

How it works

  • Two valid photo IDs are required, with one being government issued that displays your signature
  • Wire transfers must be received before 3:30 p.m. to be processed that day
  • Fees may apply – view our fee schedule for more information
  • Wire transfers are not processed on Saturdays or Credit Union holidays
  • Domestic Wire Transfers are generally completed within one business day
  • International transfers generally take longer than one business day

Please note: Wire Transfers cannot be set up over the phone.

An online domestic wire form can be completed when transferring funds from a Harvard FCU account to an account in the same name at another bank in the US.

For International wires, please fill out the Wire Transfer Form.

It is the member’s responsibility to provide complete and accurate information to process a Wire Transfer. A fee is assessed if the member requests research.

Please Note:

For all wires that are NOT being sent to an account in your own name, please refer below:

  • For wires between third party or international wires at any amount, a secure message will need to be send through your Online Banking account confirming the purpose of the wire.
  • For wires over $10,000 a video conference will be needed with the member to verify identity. If the wire is for a mortgage closing, the home closing disclosure can be accepted in place of a video call.
