The Wire Transfer Form Template covers needed information for the sending party, the beneficiary, and bank use. Outgoing wires may be requested in person, over the phone, or by mail. Complete BNK108-1 WIRE TRANSFER FORM and be sure to verify funds availability before crediting the check to the bank’s wire expense account. Note the customer’s driver’s license on the Wire Transfer Form for all “in person” requests.
Wire requests by mail should be handled with extreme caution, and the customer should have all necessary agreements on file. In addition, the customer should be contacted to verify the request before the wire is sent. Complete the Wire Transfer Form Template and note that the request was by mail and the customer was contacted for verification before the wire was sent. If the customer cannot be contacted for verification or if any doubt exists, the wire should not be sent except by the approval of an officer or supervisor.
