Also, it’s important that the sender provides all of their originator information (detailed above).

A $25.00 service fee will be charged on all incoming wires where originator information is missing.

Please contact your Valley First Branch for the specific routing information you'll need to complete your wire transfer.

Please note: if the wire transfer doesn't include all the necessary originator and beneficiary information, this may result in the refusal of the wire and the return of funds to the originator. Valley First will not be responsible for payment delays or payment cancellations due to missing information.

Sending Wire Transfers

How It Works

In order for us to comply with the Federal “Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act”, we need to do our part to ensure incoming fund transfers include full details of both the originator (sender) and the beneficiary.

If you are sending a wire transfer, you’ll need to know:

  • Your full name as the originator
  • Your full address as the originator (PO Box is not acceptable)
  • Your account number or reference number as the person requesting the transfer
  • The full name of the beneficiary (spelled correctly)
  • The date of birth of the beneficiary
  • The address (including postal/ZIP code) of the beneficiary
  • The phone number of the beneficiary
  • The account number or reference number of the beneficiary
  • The financial institution of the beneficiary
  • If you are sending a wire to the USA, you will also need the American Bank Account (ABA) Number or the SWIFT for the beneficiary bank
  • If you are sending a wire to Europe you will also need the IBAN number

Receiving Wire Transfers

How It Works

If you are expecting a wire transfer, you will need to provide the sender with the following information:

  • Your full name and address
  • Your banking information, including the transit number, financial institution number and your twelve-digit account number.
  •
