Old Emigrant Direct Accounts Numbers Still Work

Written by Nickel - 4 Comments

I mentioned the other day that Emigrant Direct had changed everyone’s account number as part of their site upgrade fiasco. I also mentioned that I would try a transfer from ING Direct to Emigrant Direct in order to test whether or not the account number change would screw up transactions with linked accounts. Well… It doesn’t. I pushed a one dollar transfer from my ING Direct Account to my Emigrant Direct account using the original (old) account number and it worked. I have no idea how long this will last, but at least for the time being the old account number works perfectly well.

So why should you care? Well, if you don’t have an Emigrant Direct account, or if you don’t make regular transfers in and out of it, you shouldn’t. But if you’ve previously linked other accounts to Emigrant Direct using the old account number, you can rest assured that your transactions will go through.

    Last week we had posted about our apprehensions about an online transaction to our old account number [ Dream Savings a/c ] at Emigrant Direct. We kept our fingers crossed and prayed that the transaction went across without incurring any bouncing fees. Well that is what has happened by God’s grace ! The old account numbers at Emigrant Direct are still working though we are not sure for how long. It would be a safe bet to update the account numbers (to the new ones issued by Emigrant Direct) for online bill pays or ACH transfers. We do appreciate Emigrant’s customer service who had assured us that the transaction will go through and will be reflected online within 3 business days.
