External Funds Transfer is the online product that you need to move money to and from Dort Federal. It lets you set up one-time and recurring transfers to and from nearly any financial institution. Standard transfers take 3 to 4 business days to complete. Premium transfers take 1 business day.
There is also a service within External Funds Transfer called Pop Money. The Pop Money service is a feature allowing you to send a small payment to someone you know; a child away at school, your gardener, etc. All you need to know about the person is their e-mail address. Upon initiation of a send money payment, we will collect the money from you. Once we have the funds secured, we will notify your recipient that money is waiting for them with instruction on how to retrieve the funds. We will then electronically deposit the funds to an account your recipient specifies.
