Step 2
Once logged into ViaConnect, select External Transfer under “Loans”.
Step 3
Set up account by entering other Financial Institution’s Routing/Transit number and account number.
Step 4
In 1-2 business days, two micro deposits will appear in the other financial institution’s account. Once received, log into ViaConnect to verify the amounts and account. 
Step 5

External Transfers should be used to transfer funds only between accounts that you own. To send money to another person or business, please use ViaBill Pay.
