Account to Account (A2A) User Guide
Account to Account (A2A) is a service CCU offers for qualifying Members to transfer funds to and from an account they are an owner of at an external financial institution. The qualifications for A2A must be met monthly for continued use. To be qualified for the A2A service, your account must meet one of the following qualifications each month.
- Fulfill the requirements for your Free Rewards Checking Account, any Tier.
- Have a loan of any type with CCU (this may include a CCU Visa credit card) with a current balance or credit line of $1,000.00 or higher.
If you meet either of these requirements each month, your account will have access to A2A. If these qualifications are not met in a particular month, your A2A access will be removed the following month. However, you are able to meet the requirements during the month the access has been removed to the service will be reinstated the following month.
To utilize the A2A system, follow these steps:
Log into your Online Banking
Go to Transfer Funds -> Manage External Account. If you do not see this option and believe your account has met the qualifications, contact CCU at 877-275-2228.
You will then be presented with the A2A disclosure. Please read the disclosure, checkmark the box and select “I accept the terms of this agreement”.
Once the agreement is accepted, the next screen will allow you to add an account you wish to use for A2A purposes. The account being added must be an account that you are an owner of.
To add an account, select “Add an account at another financial institution that is not listed above”
You are now ready to add your external account.
The information required to add an account will be your external institution’s Routing Number, Account Number (checking or savings) and an Account Nickname. Once you enter your Routing Number, select Verify and the name of your external financial institution will appear above the Routing Number. Enter your Account Number and your chosen Account Nickname. Select if the account entered is a checking or savings account. Submit.
Once this information has been submitted, you will see the newly added account listed under Manage External Accounts. The newly added account will be listed in a “Pending” status. It may also be listed as “Inactive”. Within the next 2-4 business days, you will receive 2 trial deposits into your account at the external financial institution and 2 trial withdrawals that are the same amounts as the deposits.
Once the deposits have been made, take note of the amounts and log back into your CCU online banking to verify the amounts.
To verify the amounts, select Transfer Funds -> Manage External Accounts and select the blue Verify option to the right of the account you are verifying.
Enter the 2 trial deposit amounts into the fields shown and select Next.
If the amounts are entered incorrectly, you will receive this error message "We are unable to confirm the entered amount. Please verify your records and try again".
If you are unsure of the trial deposit amounts, contact your external financial institution for clarification. If the incorrect trial deposit amounts are entered three times, the verification feature will be disabled. Please contact CCU if this occurs.
If your amounts are entered correctly, Verify will change to Active and your external account is now ready to be used for the A2A service.
