How do I send a wire transfer?

This feature is for domestic wire transfers only. International wire transfers must be completed at a U.S. Bank branch. We encourage you to make an appointment to allow time for questions and processing.

Online banking steps:

To get started, log in to online banking and follow these steps:

  1. From the top of the page, select Transfers, then External transfers and wires.
  2. Select wire money and choose the account information to pay from, amount and date. If you want to change the date, select a different day under SEND ON.
  3. Select View all dollar limits to see daily and weekly wire transfer limits. Please note that limit increases are not available. 
  4. Once complete, select Continue, enter the recipient's information, then select Continue again.
