Bank Wire Transfer (Bank-to-Bank)

What is a Wire Transfer?

A wire transfer is a fast and secure means of electronically transferring funds from one bank account to another at different financial institutions using the Federal Reserve Bank’s Fedwire platform. Wire transfers are generally received same day (depending on the time the wire is processed and the receiving financial institution’s procedures for posting). The funds are then available for use immediately upon receipt.

Due to the nature of these transfers, a reversal generally cannot be processed once the receiving financial institution has completed the payment order.
