Wire Transfers

Wire transfers allow members to send funds electronically, almost anywhere in the world, to another financial institution or Western Union™ locations. Send money to the kids at college, to a traveling friend in an emergency, or to yourself if you run out of funds on a business trip. 

You can also have funds wired to your credit union account from almost anywhere in the world. The procedures and requirements are a little different, but still offer a very convenient method to getting funds deposited into your credit union accounts. 


Outgoing Wire Transfers

To send funds from UIECU to another Financial Institution inside the US:

Outgoing wire transfers require complete wiring instructions from the receiving institution which should include the name, address, and ABA/routing number of the financial institution the funds are being wired to. The recipient's name, address (no PO box numbers) and account number are also required. If the recipient is someone other than yourself, a signed authorization to make the transfer is also needed.

To send funds from UIECU to another Financial Institution outside the US:

To send an international wire transfer, some of the procedures and terminology are different than a US wire transfer. All European cross-border wire transfers will be required to include a Bank Identifier Code (BIC)/SWIFT (The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) and an IBAN (International Bank Account Number) to identify a beneficiary account. Utilizing the IBAN reduces the number of potential delays and errors when making international payments. The recipient's name, address (No PO Box Number), currency type (US dollar or the currency for the country that you are sending to), and account number are also required. If the recipient is someone other than yourself, a signed authorization to make the transfer is also needed.

For all other international wires we require:

If you are not listed on the account we are transferring to, we require a written authorization from the UIECU member to transfer funds to that account.

  • The name of the institution

    • Address (No PO box numbers)
    • Currency Type
    • A Telex, Swift, or Sort Number
  • Beneficiary's name
    • Account number
    • Physical address (No PO box numbers)

For Western Union we will need the first and last name of person receiving the funds and the city and state. When picking up, they will need photo ID, the amount of the wire, and to know it originated from Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union in Warrenville, Illinois.
