Verify your bank account
We take security very seriously, which is why we require bank account verification for any banking deposits. You only need to take this step once, but it helps us confirm that your money is being transferred to YOU.
To verify your bank account, please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your name
- Your group's name
- A contact phone number
- A scanned image of your government-issued ID
- An image of a voided check
You may use the following format:
Hello, I am from _____ group and I am sending you my required information. My contact number is (xxx)xxx-xxxx. I have attached a scanned copy of a voided check and government-issued photo identification card.
All funds collected will be held until your account has been verified.
Once your account has been confirmed, you will receive a deposit during the next transfer period, which (unless otherwise stated in your preferences) occurs on a weekly basis each Wednesday. Deposits are sent on Wednesdays but typically take 48 business hours to reach your account. The majority of groups on the system receive their transfers on Fridays of each week.
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
