How do I make my initial deposit?

The easiest way is through an automated clearinghouse (ACH) payment from an existing checking or savings account. You can also fund via Check or Wire, click here to learn more.

If you fund your account via check please note: Once your check is received, it will be processed, and deposited into your account within 1 – 2 business days. You will see the deposit in your Current Balance until the check has cleared. The current balance is the total amount of funds in your account. The available balance is the current balance less any outstanding holds or debits that have not yet been posted to your account. Please see the Funds Availability policy for additional details.
