Dear Accountholder,
Before you request a Wire Transfer, please note the following:
You should make your request 2-3 business days in advance of when you would like us to process your Wire

This form cannot be used for outgoing Wire Transfers from an IRA account. For IRA Wire Transfers, call
1-888-204-8966 for special instructions.

To submit a Wire Transfer instruction through the Discover Mobile App: log in, tap “Transfer Money,” tap “Wire Transfer”
and follow the instructions.
Service Charges: There is a $30 service charge for each outgoing Wire Transfer. The charge will be deducted from your
account balance; do not include it in the Wire Transfer amount.
