Got questions? We've got answers.
How do I send a wire transfer?
To send a wire transfer, logon to eBanking or, visit your nearest Chemical Bank banking center. We cannot accept wire instructions through email or fax because your signature is required and must be witnessed by a representative of the bank.
For business customers, you can initiate wires with repetitive instructions over the phone. To initiate wires by phone:
- Complete a Wire Agreement at the branch. You will be assigned a personal identification number (PIN). Your PIN will arrive by mail in 10 to 14 business days. You will use this PIN to initiate wires over the phone.
- Wires sent to the same account regularly will be assigned a Repetitive Wire Code. Your code number will arrive by mail in 10 to 14 business days. You will use this code to initiate wires over the phone. For each transfer, only the dollar amount of the wire may change.
