    What You Get

    Inter-Institution Transfers is a free service that lets you make one-time or recurring online transfers between your Citibank accounts and your accounts at other banks, brokerages and credit unions in the US.

    Easily make transfers between your Citibank checking, savings or money market account AND your checking, money market or investment account at another institution.

    You can even use Inter-Institution Transfers to move money from your accounts at other financial firms directly into your high-interest Citibank savings account.

    How It Works

    Using Inter-Institution Transfers from Citibank is easy. You can:

    • Make one-time and recurring transfers
    • Make a transfer simply by setting up your non-Citi account by providing the account number and the ABA number

      An ABA number—or routing number—is a 9–digit number assigned to the bank by the American Bankers Association (ABA) and used for routing transfers and other transactions. Think of it as the bank's address.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: Citi is in the process of upgrading the customer experience for the Inter–Institution Transfer (IIT) Service. The timing and limits applicable to your transfers may differ during this transition period, depending on whether you are utilizing an existing or new feature on Citi Online to make your transfer request.

    We recommend that you add any existing linked external accounts and scheduled transfer instructions to our new Citi "Transfer Between Your Accounts" service. Please review the FAQ's below for further details.
