Please note that due to the implementation of new International Wire regulations by the CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) that was effective on October 28, 2013, Acclaim has made changes to the wire transfer requests for both Domestic and International wires. These changes went into effect starting with wire requests made on October 25, 2013 or after.


A few of the changes include: 1) A wire that contains any international financial institution and/or ends up in a non-USA financial institution account will be considered an "International Wire" and must follow the Acclaim International Wire Transfer instructions; and 2) Cut-off times have changed for the International Wire Transfers; contact an Acclaim representative well in advance of your International Wire Transfer request.

Direct Transfers

Transfer money from other institutions to make loan payments or deposits to your Acclaim accounts using the Automated Clearing House (ACH). This is the same system used for Direct Deposits. Transfers can be a one-time occurrence or scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.    

**Important Update**

Effective September 15th, all financial institutions, including Acclaim Federal Credit Uinion, will be required by Federal regulations to post electronic charges and deposits several times throughout the business day.

What does this mean for you?

Charges which have previously taken 2-3 business days to withdraw from an account may now withdraw within minutes or on the same day as the transaction occurred. For example, an on-line payment, telephone payment, or electronic check may post on the same day that the transaction occurred.


To make a transfer, complete and return the following form:    ACH Debit Transfer Form

Looking for a cheaper alternative to standard wire fees?  Consider transferring money to another financial institution through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) instead.  These funds are typically available on the next business day.  This is the same system used for Direct Deposits. Transfers can be a one-time occurrence or scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
