External Transfers

External account-to-account transfers allow you to easily move money between your Associated account and accounts you own at other financial institutions in the United States.

Adding accounts

Sign in to Online Banking and click the “Bill Pay” tab. Go to External Transfers, click Add an Account and enter the routing and account numbers for your external accounts. You will have to verify that you are the account owner in three easy steps:
  1. Wait two business days. Associated Bank will make two test deposits and one test withdrawal into the account you are adding.
  2. Find two test deposits. You will need to look at the transactions of the account you are adding to identify the test deposits.
  3. Enter the deposits in Online Bill Pay. You will be asked to enter the two deposit amounts in order to verify you own the account.

What does it cost?

There is a $0.50 fee to transfer money out, but no fee to transfer money into your Associated account.
