After having moved a year ago, we finally got around to closing our old checking account (we had long since drawn the balance down to zero) and updating some of the links to our online savings accounts. In case you’re wondering how to link additional accounts to your Emigrant Direct savings account, wonder no more… I have the answer for you right here.
First, login to your account. Then click on the “Funding” tab and click the “Add Funding Account” button. Once you’ve entered the particulars of your account, click continue. After that, you’ll be instructed to write your Emigrant Direct account number on the memo line of a voided check and mail it to:
Attn: Account Fulfillment
13 Croton Ave.
Ossining, NY 10562
After they receive your check, they’ll make two small deposits in your newly linked account (just like when you set up your initial funding source). Once you’ve confirmed the amounts, you’re good to go. Given that you have to submit a check, I’m guessing you won’t be able to get away with linking a savings account. That’s not really a problem for me, though, because I established links between ING Direct, HSBC Direct, and Emigrant Direct back in the day before they tightened up the linking procedures.
