Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently, we see that direct deposits may not credit your account due to an invalid account number. Be sure to verify with the issuer of the deposit that they are sending funds with your full 14 digit account number. You may also provide the issuer of the deposit a voided check.

You may also want to validate the ABA Routing Number, 253175494.

Transferring funds is easy and free! Simply log into Digital Banking and select Transfer Funds. Follow the displayed prompts. Transfers may take up to 3-5 business days to credit.

You may also transfer funds from your Coastal account to another financial institution via a wire transfer. To initiate a wire transfer, please contact our Call Center at (800)868-4262, ext 6784 or 919-420-8000, ext 6784 or visit the nearest branch location.

Federal Regulations require us to have limitations on the number and types of withdrawals allowed on a savings account. Your savings accounts are limited to 5 teller withdrawals (this includes cash and official checks) per month. Any transactions in excess of 5 are charged a fee for each withdrawal. As an alternative, you can avoid this fee by performing a cash withdraw from your savings account at an ATM. It's good to know that ATM withdrawals from savings accounts do not count against your 5 monthly teller withdrawals, or the 6 monthly electronic withdrawals that are allowed by Federal Regulation D. Transfers made through Telephone Banking, Digital Banking, or our Transaction Call Center count towards the 6 monthly transactions allowed by Federal Regulation D. Any ACH (electronic) debits from savings count towards the 6 as well. Also, if a savings account is used for overdraft protection, then overdraft transfers from savings will also count towards the six transactions per month. If you find yourself coming close or exceeding your limits, you may want to consider a checking account at Coastal.
