To wire funds from your account at BrightStar CU to another financial institution, simply visit your nearest BrightStar CU branch location, or you may call BrightStar CU to coordinate a wire transfer via fax.
You will need the other financial institution’s wiring instructions—which typically includes the bank’s name, their correct routing/transit number and the individual’s name and account number to which funds will be wired. BrightStar CU requires a signature in order to wire funds. In addition, we will need to verify your identity for security purposes. To initiate an international wire transfer, additional information will be required—including both the receiving institution’s and individual’s addresses. Ask a BrightStar CU representative for information about wire transfer fees.
If you are receiving a wire transfer of funds from elsewhere, the person initiating the transfer will need to provide your name and account number at BrightStar CU as well as BrightStar CU’s routing/transit number (267078299) and our name (BrightStar Credit Union).
