Wire Transfer Instructions

  1. 1. 1 Sending a Wire Request with Move Funds Oftentimes, clients will need to transfer money between bank accounts and/or investment accounts or escrow accounts. This can easily be performed using Move Funds’ Request Wire Transfer feature. Note: At any time during the process, you can save your wire request as a draft, for submission later by clicking the Save to Draft button at the bottom of the Request Wire screen. If you do save a draft, remember that the cutoff time for same day wire requests is 2:30 p.m. ET. Expand All Collapse All What you’ll need You will need particular pieces of information in order to perform a wire transfer.

Click the Continue button to verify the information is correct. Verification and Acknowledgment The Verification screen allows you to review the information before you submit it and to generate a Letter of Authorization (LOA) if one has not already been generated, Note: A LOA is always required when the beneficiary’s account registration at the receiving bank or financial institution does not match their brokerage account registration. In the lower left of both screens, a red message will indicate information about your request you will need to attend to. 1. Verify that all the information on the screen is correct. If you need to make changes, click the Edit button at the bottom of the screen. 2. When you are satisfied the information is accurate, click the Submit button if you already have a signed Letter of Authorization, otherwise click the Submit and Generate SLOA to submit the wire and generate a Letter of Authorization. 3. The Acknowledgement screen confirms that your wire request has been submitted. The wire will show as pending until client authorization has been received and approved. 4. Fax the signed LOA to your service team. . Questions for Subject Matter Experts When doing an account to account wire for a client, what if the beneficiary’s information at the receiving bank is different from their recorded registration (e.g., maiden name or the addition of a middle initial)? Should On Record or Third party be chosen? In terms of the information at the bottom of the Acknowledge and Verify pages, can we have some examples of the type of information that might appear there? Why does the online LOA need to be placed on top of the existing LOA for priority processing? Also, this seems to contradict not needing to generate an LOA when one already exists.
