To enable wire transfers in Online Banking, you will need to complete the Online Wires Application.

Where can I find the Wire Application and Agreement for Online Banking?
The agreement can be found in Online Banking. Look under the Payments tab, then click on the Wire Application link. Or, look under the Services tab in the Account Services section. The Wire Application for Online Banking is also located in the Agreement Center of the bank web site.
What is Enhanced Account Protection (EAP), who must use it, and why is it needed?
To use the Online Banking wires service, you must enroll in Enhanced Account Protection (1) if you are a business that does not use Dual Authorization, or (2) if you are a consumer. EAP is a free internal security tool for wire transfers and certain other types of Online Banking transactions. When your account is first enabled for wire transfers, you will be prompted to enroll in EAP the next time you login to Online Banking (unless you are a business with Dual Authorization).
Do Business Online Banking customers have the option of using Dual Authorization?
Business Online Banking customers have the option of using Dual Authorization instead of EAP. Dual Authorization requires two individuals to complete a transaction as an internal security tool for business accounts.

Domestic wire transfers (i.e., wires that are sent from one location within the United States (US) to a different location in the US) are available in Online Banking. To make an International (outside the United States) wire transfer, you need to visit a Financial Center or call the Central Wires department. To call Central Wires, you will need to have a Wire Transfer Agreement already in place.
