There are four ways to make a deposit into your new account:
1. Online funds transfer: If you are an existing customer, log in to your Ally Bank account. If you've already set up your non-Ally account for funding, go to Transfers and select Ally to non-Ally Accounts.
To add a new non-Ally bank or brokerage account, go to Transfers > Ally to non-Ally Accounts > Manage Accounts tab. We'll start the process for making your online funds transfer immediately, but it will take 3 business days to complete.
If you're a new customer and plan to open an account, setting up a new non-Ally account for online funds transfer is easy.
When you open your account, you get to choose whether you want to mail your funding check to us or send it online. If you choose to transfer the money electronically, you'll set up your non-Ally account at this time. When you make this choice, a panel opens and asks for the amount of the transfer and your external bank account and routing numbers. (We show you an image of a check to help you quickly know which numbers to enter.) You'll then be asked whether you want to make transfers from this account in the future. Say "yes," and we'll save this account for you to use again in the future. Before you can make transfers with a non-Ally account, we'll need to verify ownership of that account. Once verification is complete, your non-Ally account will be ready to use. If you need us at any time along the way, we're here to help at 1-877-247-ALLY (2559).
2. Scan your deposit – Ally eCheck Deposit: All you need to scan your check from your home or office is a scanner and computer with an internet connection. See how it works
3. Wire transfer: If you would like to transfer funds from a non-Ally account call us at 1-877-247-ALLY (2559). We'll help you with the information you need to give to the other financial institution.
4. Mail your deposit: You can also fund your account with a paper check — sorry, we do not accept cash. Make sure the check is endorsed and made payable to you. You should also write "Deposit only" along with your account number on the back. Be sure to seal the envelope properly and mail it to us at:
