Transferring to an account that is "off the books" (at another financial institution) such as making a deposit for a loan at another credit union

Credit unions may activate the ability for employees and members to make scheduled payments to accounts configured with the CU*BASE "Off Trial Balance" or the CU*BASE Account to Account (A2A) features.  This allows for the creation of scheduled payments to these accounts.  This feature must be activated.

If activated, when you enter an account and use Enter you will be presented with additional buttons on this screen.  Refer to the Account to Account (A2A) Transfer manual and the Tracking "Off Trail Balance" (OTB) Products with CU*BASE booklet for more details on special delinquency handling of these AFTs.  It is recommended that you use a sweep account to make transfers to Certificate, HSA, and IRA accounts.
