How Do I Link and Verify My Bank Account to Transfer Funds?

​Method 1: Instant Account Verification
1. Go to the Funds tab > Click to connect a bank under the Bento Transfer Icon

2. Search for your credit union or banking institution

3. Enter your online banking credentials to complete the verification process

Note: Most major banking institutions support instant bank account verification. If your bank does not support it, you will need to use the Deposit Verification method.

​Method 2: Deposit Verification
1. Navigate to the Funds tab > Click to connect a bank > Connect your bank via micro deposit verification

2. Enter your bank's routing number and account number to link the account

3. In 1-2 business days, check your bank account activity for 2 penny deposits from Bento

4. Once the deposit has been made, navigate to the Funds tab > Verify Account > Enter the two deposit amounts 

5. If the amounts are a match, your bank account will be successfully verified

Note: The account being linked must permit ACH debit transfers out of the account, otherwise transfers initiated from this account will fail.

If you do not remember your online banking login credentials, request a password reset or additional login assistance from your bank's login page. Once you have regained access to your online bank account, use your new credentials to link your bank account to Bento.

Your online banking credentials are protected by 256-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to keep your information safe and secure.
