What is the current balance on the Account Overview page?

Can I schedule a transfer to take place in the future or set up recurring transfers?
Yes. You can select either the ‘Scheduled’ option or choose the ‘Repeating’ option from the ‘Amount of Transfer’ column under ‘Make an Internal Transfer’ dropdown. Any scheduled or repeating transfer will occur at 9 a.m. on the specified business day.
