Wire transfer


A wire transfer is an electronic transfer of money between accounts, including accounts at different financial institutions. Wire transfers are fast and highly secure.

Contact your other financial institution and ask them to wire funds to E*TRADE Securities. You'll need to provide them with the information below.

You can complete and print out an easy Wire Transfer Form here.

For details on how to wire money into an E*TRADE Bank deposit account, as well as funds availability information for Wire Transfers to and from E*TRADE Bank deposit accounts, please click here.

If your financial institution is located in the United States:

 

The receiving institution information:

E*TRADE Securities LLC
PO Box 484
Jersey City, NJ 07303-0484

ABA Transit Routing Number: 056073573

 

Your information:

  • The amount you want to wire
  • Your eight-digit E*TRADE Securities account number (Your account number can be found on the Complete View page when you first log on.)
  • Your name and address

 

 

 

If your financial institution is located outside the United States:

 

The receiving institution information (example):

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
420 Montgomery Street
San Francisco, CA 94104

SWIFT Code: WFBIUS6S
For the benefit of: E*TRADE Securities
ABA Routing Number: 056073573

 

Your information:

Please note, your wire should ONLY be routed through the Wells Fargo WFBIUS6S SWIFT Code if your international bank does not have a corresponding US Bank. Any attempt should be made by your bank to send directly to ABA 056073573, as sending through the additional account may lead to delays in the processing of your wire.
