How to get started

  • Log into Online Banking and select External Transfers. The new transfer screen will appear.
  • Click on Add a New Account and follow the on-screen instructions to set up your external account(s). The system will prompt you to do:
    • Trial Deposits, in which case two small credits and one debit of equal value will post to your external account(s) OR
    • Real Time Verification using your external account’s online banking login.
  • If Trial Deposits is the form of verification your account goes through, you will need to:
    • Inquire directly into your external account to identify the deposit amounts.  Deposits should show as being from “TRIALCREDT”.  Notate the deposit amounts for future reference.
    • Log into Heritage Bank’s online banking, select External Transfers, and then click on Manage Accounts.
    • Click the Activate Now link next to the account you are adding and follow the prompt in the next step.  Enter the correct deposit amounts.  If the deposit amounts you enter are the same that we deposited into your account, then your account will instantly be available for funds transfers.
  • Start using the new transfer service as soon as the Account Verification process is complete!
  • PLEASE NOTE: This verification process can take 4-6 business days.
