SunTrust will initiate one or two trial transfers to your account; acquire these amounts to finish the verification.

The transfer will usually be posted on your account within the next two business days. You can then identify the amounts either by calling your financial institution, by viewing the balance online, or by reviewing your monthly statement. The trial transfer transactions are identified as from SunTrust.


Return to the Preferences page, and click Verify next to the account record.



Enter the amounts of the transfers and then click Activate.
