  • Wire-transfer instructions received after deadlines, or on a day the Credit Union is open for business but the Federal Reserve Bank is closed, will be processed the following business day. Deadline for domestic wires: 4:30 PM ET/1:30 PM (PT); for international wires: 2:30 PM ET/11:30 PM (PT).

Foreign Collection Items — all currencies other than U.S. Dollars (USD)

As a courtesy to our members, we exchange and deposit all major currency checks into your accounts for a small fee (see Fee Schedule under “General Fees”). Because we do not have an internal foreign exchange processing system, we outsource these transactions to another financial institution.

When submitting a Foreign Collection Item, please be aware of the following:

  • It may take up to 6 weeks for your account to receive Provisional Credit (the credit given by the processing financial institution)
  • If the item is returned, the Return Value may differ from the Provisional Credit received due to continually fluctuating exchange rates
  • Because of fluctuating exchange rates, ActorsFCU cannot guarantee the amount that will be credited once the instrument is converted from the foreign currency into USD
  • ActorsFCU cannot guarantee that foreign exchange rates will reflect the rates listed on foreign exchange websites

Canadian Items Drawn in USD

  • Items drawn in USD from Canadian financial institutions will be deposited immediately
  • Checks must bear an imprint specifying they are drawn on a USD account (i.e., “USD” or “US Funds”)
