Wire Transfers

You can send or receive money to someone quickly by using the wire transfer service at LGFCU.

When you need to send or receive money fast, stop by your local branch to use our wire transfer service. To send money from one individual to another, the financial institution of the sender will wire the funds to the financial institution of the receiver. The funds are then disbursed as directed.

  • Transfers are made through a direct, electronic link with the Federal Reserve.
  • Transfers are made only between financial institutions.
  • LGFCU charges no fees to receive wire transfers, but the other financial institution might.
  • Visit Fees for costs to send domestic and international wire transfers.

Before heading out to your local branch to initiate a wire transfer, call the financial institution where you are wiring the money and get the routing number and account number. Also, find out if an intermediary financial institution will handle the transfer. Then bring your Driver's License or Identification Card and the information for the other financial institution to the branch.
