Domestic wires: UECU accepts in-bound wires; however, we do not accept direct wire transfers. Our wiring instructions are as follows: Provide your U.S. Bank with the following information to domestically wire your funds to your UECU account via the Vizo Financial Corporate Credit Union, which handles UECU’s wire transfers.

Once your money reaches the correspondent U.S. bank, the funds can be wired to UECU through the Vizo Financial Corporate Credit Union.

Ask your U.S. bank for their IBAN or SWIFT number so you can provide it to the foreign bank, along with your U.S. bank account number, when you request the international wire transfer.
Step 2 – Domestic Wire Transfer Instructions: Provide your U.S. Bank with the following information to domestically wire your funds to your UECU account via the Vizo Financial Corporate Credit Union, which handles UECU’s wire transfers.
