How do I verify my external Account?

  • log into your external bank account (or call your financial institution if you do not have online banking) and note the transfer amount
  • log into your Coulee Bank Home Branch account and go to Enrolled Accounts in the Bank to Bank Transfer sub-menu

  • If you have entered the correct amount, the account will display a "Verified" status and you may then schedule transfers.

How long do I have to verify my account?

You have seven calendar days after you enroll your external account to look for the test deposit and enter it into the system to confirm the enrollment. If you are unable to verify within seven days, simply re-enroll your account to restart the process.

Note: If you have to restart the enrollment process because the seven days expired, be sure to use the most recent test deposit amount when verifying your account.

Are there any limitations on the number of external accounts I may enroll or use for transfers?

Yes, you may have a maximum of four (4) external accounts.

Do I have to submit another application if I want to add a new financial institution?

Yes. In order to protect your identity and personal information we need to verify that you are the person making this request. Every customer is required to fill out a new application when modifying an account or financial institution. Click here for the application. A $10.00 fee will apply for any additions or modifications after the initial application has been processed.

Are there any limitations on the number or amount of transfers I can submit?

There is a daily limit of three inbound and three outbound transfers and a daily cap limit of $15,000.00 for incoming and $10,000.00 for outgoing transfers.

Is it possible to receive a different daily limit?

If you need to transfer larger amounts, plan to use Wire Transfer services. Contact one of our customer service representatives for assistance with a wire transfer.

How soon after my transfer is initiated will funds post to my account?

If the transfer request is completed before 2:00 p.m. Central Time on a business day, the funds will post in two business days. For transfer requests completed after 2:00 p.m., look for the funds to arrive in three business days.
Note:  Transfers are only processed on business days. No processing is done on holidays. If the transfer date falls on a holiday or weekend, the transfer will be processed on the next business day.

May I schedule transfers to happen automatically or schedule a transfer for a future date?

You may schedule recurring transfers or single transfers with a future date. These transfers will count toward your daily limits on the day the transfer is scheduled to occur. If you schedule a future outgoing transfer and available funds on that date are less than the transfer amount requested, the transfer will be rejected and you will need to resubmit if for that occurrence.
Note: If you schedule an incoming transfer for which the amount exceeds the available balance in the external account, that financial institution may charge you fees related to insufficient funds.

Are businesses allowed to enroll in Bank to Bank Transfers?

The service is limited to personal consumers. Businesses may access ACH services for similar transfers. Contact our Operations Department for assistance with our ACH service for businesses.
