Direct Deposit

Q: What is a routing number?

A: A routing number is a 9 digit identification number that is assigned to a federal or state chartered financial institution. An account number identifies your specific account with a financial institution and the routing number identifies the financial institution. Routing numbers normally appear on the bottom left of a check and are necessary to process electronic transactions which include direct deposits, wire transfers and debits for payments such as utilities, loans, insurance, etc. A routing number is sometimes referred to as an ABA (American Bankers Association) number.

A: It is 321380085. FYI, routing numbers are always 9 digits.

Q: What must I do to have my entire paycheck (direct deposit) or a portion of my paycheck (payroll deduction) electronically transmitted to the credit union?

A: Please contact your payroll department to set up the direct deposit or payroll deduction and provide your account number, routing number and account type (savings or checking). This arrangement is an agreement between you and your employer. Therefore, initiation and termination of the agreement must be done with your employer.

Outgoing Wire Transfer Information

Outgoing Wire Forms

  • Q: What information will be required to send an outgoing DOMESTIC (U.S.) wire transfer?

    A: The following information will be required:

    • Receiving Financial Institution: Name & Address, Routing/ABA Number
    • Beneficiary Account Information: Account Name, Account Number, Account Type (savings or checking)

    A: Sometimes a foreign financial institution may have a relationship with a domestic financial institution. The domestic financial institution may also be known as the intermediary institution. If that is the case, the same information which is shown above will be required.

    If the foreign financial institution does not have a relationship with a domestic financial institution, a SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) code will be required in place of the routing number. The SWIFT code for a foreign financial institution is the equivalent of the routing number for a domestic financial institution. Sometimes the SWIFT code may appear on an account statement.

Loans

  • Q: How do I apply for a loan?

    A: You may apply online for an auto and personal loan or schedule an appointment.

    The documents that are normally required are:

    • If you receive W-2 income (not self-employed), pay stubs for the last 30 days
    • If you are self-employed, the most recent federal income tax return
    • If you are purchasing a vehicle, please review a list of additional documents and things to do.

    You may apply online for a real estate loan or schedule an appointment. The application process will inform you what documents you will be required to provide.

  • Q: What’s the difference between getting pre-qualified vs. pre-approved?

    A: Whether it’s a real estate or auto loan, it’s always a good idea to get pre-qualified or pre-approved so you know approximately how much you can afford to spend. A pre-qualification is an estimated amount of how much you may be approved for, however, your credit profile is not verified by a credit report and income and assets are not verified by documents. A pre-approval is stronger because your credit is verified by a credit report and your income and assets are verified by documents. If you are just looking around and thinking about a purchase, the pre-qualification may be sufficient, however, if you are more serious and closer to a purchase, you will want to get a pre-approval. Please contact us to find out about getting pre-approved or pre-qualified for a real estate loan or auto and personal loan.

I have been doing business with Wailuku Federal Credit Union for 11 years now. Walking into the branch feels like stepping into one of my family member’s home. I’m always greeted by a friendly face such as the team members Alyssa, Kellie, and Brandi just to name a few. Mahalo Wailuku FCU for treating me like family.
