What is Instant Account Verification?

"Instant Account Verification (IAV)" in Online Access allows a faster way for you to link an account at another financial institution to your CU1 account, so you can transfer funds between the two!
  • IAV works by doing a name match on your linked accounts. This means you are only able to link your accounts at another FI to your CU1 account. Ensuring that you're only linked to your own accounts helps protect your security and reduce fraud.
  • The IAV feature of Online Access lives alongside the current “manual” method of account linking in Online Access, which can be found under Move Money > Transfers > Classic > Add an Account. Near the end of May, the manual method of linking will be retired.
  • If you attempt to link an account at another financial institution that does not match the name on your CU1 account, Online Access will show error code "IAV8," which means the names aren't a match. To help make account linking a breeze, ensure that your current legal name is updated on all accounts.
