Wire Transfers

How do I send or receive wire transfers?

To wire funds into an account at DOLFCU, please provide the following information to the other financial institution.

Written fees authorization is required to send both domestic and international wires. Fees apply and vary by type of wire transfer.  See Fee Schedule.

Wire Funds To:

  • Name: Vizo Financial Corporate Federal Credit Union
  • Address: 7900 Triad Center Dr. Suite 410 Greensboro, North Carolina 27409
  • ABA: 231 387 550

Further Credit To:

  • Name: Department of Labor FCU
  • Address: 200 Constitution Ave. NW Washington, DC 20210
  • Account Number: 254 074 426 101 00

Final Credit To:

  • Member’s Name DOLFCU
  • Account Number

Neither DOLFCU or our Affiliate Vizo Financial use a Swift Code/IBAN for international wires. Due to this, the financial institution initiating the wire must send the funds through their own Correspondent Bank in the United States and it is up to the financial institution sending the wire to use the Swift Code/IBAN belonging to the that particular Correspondent Bank. All other incoming wire instructions remain the same.

Debit Card

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit

Why waste time standing in line to deposit your payroll check? With DOLFCU's Direct Deposit option you can have your entire paycheck directly deposited into the Checking or Savings account of your choice. We accept direct deposit of all payrolls, including Social Security, Civil Service and Military Retirement Benefits.

To sign up for Direct Deposit, contact your payroll department and provide DOLFCU's Routing and Transit number - 254074426 - and your member number.

 

Payroll Deduction

You can also elect to have portions of your paycheck automatically sent to different DOLFCU deposit and loan accounts. This can help you make savings "automatic" each month and you can change your deduction options anytime.

To set up Payroll Deduction, emailvisit a branch, or call a DOLFCU Member Services Representative at (202) 789-2901.

Overdraft Protection

 Overdraft Coverage Options

With our busy lives, it’s easy to make mistakes such as forgetting to deposit a check, make a transfer, or deduct your last debit charge from your balance. A simple error or balance miscalculation can lead to an unexpected shortage of funds.

Have peace of mind knowing your checking account is covered when the unexpected happens. Your choices for Overdraft Protection include:

  • Savings Transfer
  • Line of Credit
  • Overdraft Privilege

Choose which option works best for you!

Savings Account Transfer

Set up Overdraft Protection Transfer from another eligible DOLFCU Share Account. In the event of an overdraft, available funds will be automatically transferred to your checking account to cover the overdraft. (Transfer Limits - Up to six (6) per month for Savings, up to three (3) per month for Money Market.) Please contact us to set up this option.

Line of Credit

An overdraft Line of Credit is a loan attached to your checking account. Any overdrafts on your account may be paid by the Line of Credit. You will be charged interest and you must repay the loan. This may be less expensive than the other options for paying overdrafts. A line of credit is subject to normal credit approval guidelines. Please contact us for more details.

Overdraft Privilege

Even if you have Overdraft Protection, Overdraft Privilege is still available as additional coverage if your other protection sources are exhausted. Overdraft Privilege is not a Line of Credit; however, if you inadvertently overdraw your account, we will have the discretion to pay the overdraft, subject to your Overdraft Privilege.

These options apply to checks and ACH transactions, and DOLFCU can only pay overdrafts for ATM or everyday debit card transactions if you have given us consent to extend coverage for payment of these overdrafts.

  • We will charge you a fee of up to $30 each time we pay an overdraft if your account is overdrawn more than $10.
  • We will not charge you a fee if your account is overdrawn by $10 or less on any given day.
  • There is a maximum of 5 Overdraft Fees and no limit of NSF fees per day on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account.
  • You have a maximum of 32 days to bring the account back to positive status.

If you would like to select this Overdraft Privilege Extended Coverage to cover ATM and everyday debit card transactions, simply complete this Opt In Consent Form and:

  • Mail to PO Box 51, Merrifield, VA 22116
  • Return in person to one of our branch locations
  • Email your request to Opt In
  • Call or text us your request to Opt In to (202) 789-2901.

For additional information about the Overdraft Privilege Program, download "What Else You Should Know" or read below.

What Else You Should Know about the Overdraft Privilege Program

  • A link to another account or a line of credit may be a less expensive option than an overdraft. A single larger overdraft will result in just one fee, as opposed to multiple smaller overdrafts. Good account management is the best way to avoid overdrafts. Use our mobile banking, internet banking, and telephone banking services to keep track of your balance. For additional financial education resources, please visit www.mymoney.gov.
  • The $30 Overdraft Fee that is charged if you overdraw your account more than $10 is the same fee amount that is charged if an item is returned as unpaid. If multiple items overdraw your account on the same day, each item will be assessed an appropriate Overdraft Fee or an NSF Fee of $30. All fees and charges will be included as part of the Overdraft Privilege limit amount. Your account may become overdrawn more than the Overdraft Privilege limit amount because of a fee.
  • Recipients of federal or state benefits payments who do not wish us to deduct the amount overdrawn and the Overdraft Fee from funds that you deposit or that are deposited into your account may call us at (202) 789-2901 to discontinue Overdraft Privilege.
  • If an item is returned because the Available Balance in your account (as defined below) is not sufficient to cover the item and the item is presented for payment again, DOLFCU ("We") will charge an NSF Fee each time it returns the item because it exceeds the Available Balance in your account. Because we may charge an NSF Fee each time an item is presented, we may charge you more than one fee for any given item as a result of a returned item and representment of the item. When we charge an NSF Fee, the charge reduces the Available Balance in your account and may put your account into (or further into) overdraft. If, on representment of the item, the Available Balance in your account is sufficient to cover the item we may pay the item, and, if payment causes an overdraft, charge an Overdraft Fee.
  • For consumer accounts, there is a limit of $90 Overdraft Fees (3) per day we will charge. We will not charge an Overdraft Fee if a consumer account is overdrawn by $10 or less or if the amount of the item is $10 or less. These exceptions do not apply to business accounts.
  • Our general policy is to post items throughout the day and to post credits before debits. We post checks, ACH debits, ATM and debits card transactions in the order in which they are received. However, because of the many ways we allow you to access your account, the posting order of individual items may differ from these general policies. Holds on funds (described herein) and the order in which transactions are posted may impact the total amount of Overdraft Fees or NSF Fees assessed.
  • Overdraft Privilege is not a line of credit; it is a discretionary overdraft service that can be withdrawn at any time without prior notice.
  • Depositor and each Authorized Signatory will continue to be liable, jointly and severally, for all overdraft and fee amounts, as described in the Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosure. The total (negative) balance, including all fees and charges, is due and payable upon demand.
  • We may be obligated to pay some debit card transactions that are not authorized through the payment system but which we are required to pay due to the payment system rules, and as a result you may incur fees if such transactions overdraw your account. However, we will not authorize debit card or ATM transactions unless your account’s Available Balance (including Overdraft Coverage Options) is sufficient to cover the transactions and any fee(s).
  • Giving us your consent to pay everyday debit card and ATM overdrafts on your consumer account (Extended Coverage) may result in you incurring Overdraft Fees for transactions that we would otherwise be required to pay without assessing an Overdraft Fee. However, this would allow us to authorize transactions up to the amount of your Overdraft Privilege limit. If you consent to Extended Coverage on your consumer account, it will remain on your account until it is otherwise withdrawn.

Understanding your Available Balance:

Your account has two kinds of balances: the Ledger Balance and the Available Balance.

  • We authorize and pay transactions using the Available Balance.
  • Your Ledger Balance reflects the full amount of all deposits to your account as well as payment transactions that have been posted to your account. It does not reflect checks you have written and are still outstanding or transactions that have been authorized but are still pending.
  • Your Available Balance is the amount available to you to use for purchases, withdrawals, or to cover transactions. The Available Balance is your Ledger Balance, less any holds due to pending debit card transactions and holds on deposited funds.
  • The balance used for authorizing checks, ACH items, and recurring debit card transactions is your Available Balance plus the amount of the Overdraft Privilege limit and any available Overdraft Protection.
  • The balance used for authorizing ATM and everyday debit card transactions on accounts with Standard Coverage is your Available Balance plus any available Overdraft Protection but does NOT include the Overdraft Privilege limit. The balance used for authorizing ATM and everyday debit card transactions on accounts with Extended Coverage is your Available Balance plus any available Overdraft Protection and includes the Overdraft Privilege limit.
  • Because your Available Balance reflects pending transactions and debit holds, your balance may appear to cover a transaction but later upon settlement it may not be sufficient to cover such transaction. In such cases, the transaction may further overdraw your account and be subject to additional overdraft fees. You should assume that any item which would overdraw your account based on your Available Balance may create an overdraft. Note that we may place a hold on deposited funds in accordance with our Deposit Account Agreement and Disclosure, which will reduce the amount in your Available Balance.
  • Please be aware that the Overdraft Privilege amount is not included in your Available Balance provided through online banking, mobile banking or DOLFCU’s ATMs.
  • We will place a hold on your account for any authorized debit card transaction until the transaction settles (usually within two business days) or as permitted by payment system rules. In some cases, the hold may exceed the amount of the transaction. When the hold ends, the funds will be added to the Available Balance in your account. If your account is overdrawn after the held funds are added to the Available Balance and the transaction is posted to the Available Balance, an Overdraft Fee may be assessed.
  • Except as described herein, we will not pay items if the Available Balance in your account (including the Overdraft Privilege limit, if applicable) is not sufficient to cover the item(s) and the amount of any fee(s).
  • We may suspend your debit card if we are unable to contact you due to an incorrect mailing address or phone number(s), or for fraud. You must contact us with your correct mailing address and/or phone number(s) to have your debit card reinstated.
  • We will charge a fee of $10 to reactivate your debit card if we suspend your debit card.
  • If your debit card is suspended, you will be unable to use your debit card(s) for purchases or to access your account(s) associated with the debit card(s) at the ATM while your debit card is suspended. If you use your debit card for recurring payments, e.g., utilities, you are responsible to make other arrangements for your recurring debit payment(s).

Understanding Overdraft Privilege Limits

  • An Overdraft Privilege limit of $1,000 will be granted to eligible consumer checking accounts opened at least 30 days in good standing.
  • Overdraft Privilege may be reduced if you default on any loan or other obligation to us, your account becomes subject to
    any legal or administrative order or levy, or if you fail to maintain your account in good standing by not bringing your account to a positive balance within 32 days for a minimum of one business day. You must bring your account balance
    positive for at least one business day to have the full Overdraft Privilege limit reinstated.

If you have questions or concerns about Overdraft Protection or Overdraft Privilege, simply emailvisit a branch, or call a DOLFCU Member Service Representative at (202) 789-2901.

Accounts will be charged the standard Overdraft fee of $30 for handling each overdraft created by check, ACH, Point-of-Sale, ATM withdrawal, in-person withdrawal, or other electronic item that is paid and $30 for items returned. An overdrawn balance must be repaid within 32 days. We may not pay items under your Overdraft Privilege if you do not maintain your account in good standing by bringing your account to a positive balance within every thirty-two (32) day period for a minimum of 24 hours, if you default on any loan or other obligation to DOLFCU or if your account is subject to any legal or administrative order or levy.

If an item is returned because the available balance in your account is not sufficient to cover the item and the item is presented for payment again, Department of Labor Federal Credit Union will charge a return item fee each time it returns the item because it exceeds the available balance in your account. If, on representment of the item, the available balance in your account is sufficient to cover the item Department of Labor Federal Credit Union may pay the item, and, if payment causes an overdraft, charge an overdraft fee.
