New Regulations Affecting International Wire Transfers - Effective October 28, 2013

Beginning October 28, 2013, new regulations regarding international wire transfers require Members to agree to certain terms in person with a signature, or orally during a recorded phone call. The service fees, currency exchange rate, amount to be received by recipient and the date funds will be received will now be provided to Members sending international wire transfers.

A valid ID and phone number are required to send international and domestic wire transfers, as we may call you to verify the transfer details as an additional security measure. Incorrect or missing information may delay your wire transfer.
