Option 2: Adding Your Bank Account Manually – Part 1

If your bank account is not available in the Plaid interface you will have to manually add your account. This process will require you to have your bank account information on hand such as branch, account and transit numbers. After you submit the request to link your bank account two small deposits will be made into the account you specified. Once you see those deposits in your bank account, return to the payment method manager to verify your account. Follow the instructions below for more details.

(Please Note: Payment method options are controlled by your care provider).

Note: Please ensure you are using a browser that is not Internet Explorer. There should be no spaces or dashes in your Transit, Institution, and Bank Account Number when entering it.


Why do I need to verify my account?

 It’s easy to accidentally enter an incorrect account or transit number. These small, random micro-deposits are used to verify that the bank account information you enter does in fact belong to you. This process keeps everyone’s bank account safe from accidental debits intended for another person. These micro-deposits are automatically deposited into your bank account and are less than a dollar each. In your bank statement, it would show up as “Miscellaneous Payment” or “AMTS”.
