Wire Transfers

Wire transfers are a great way to send money quickly when the need arises. CESFCU sends and receives domestic wire transfers. Wire transfers are sent according to the wiring instructions provided by the sender.

While Wire transfers are fast and efficient, the sending financial institution is usually unable to retract them once they are sent. Thus, members must ensure the wiring instructions they provide to the Credit Union are correct and should consider all wire transfers final.

Please complete the Wire Transfer Request and Agreement to complete an outgoing Wire Transfer.

  • Wire transfers may be funded by cashier’s check, cash or money order, or from funds on deposit in CESFCU Regular Share Savings, Special Share Savings, or other Share Savings account where funds are not on hold or restricted (based on account type)
  • Wire transfers conducted between financial institutions only
  • Funds disbursed as directed by sender
  • Fees
    • $15 fee to send a domestic wire transfer
    • $10 fee to receive a wire transfer

Members should always contact the receiving financial institution to request proper wiring instructions before initiating a wire transfer. Members who wish to have their wire transfer sent the same day they make the transfer request must submit the request on Credit Union business days before the daily cutoff time of 3:00 pm CST.

Members sending funds to CESFCU as a wire transfer, should follow the Incoming Wire Instructions:

Receiver Depository/Financial Institution (FI) Catalyst Corp Federal Credit Union
Receiver FI ABA/Routing Number 311990511
Beneficiary Depository/Financial Institution Cooperative Extension Service Federal Credit Union
Beneficiary FI Account Number 282075086
Beneficiary Name (Primary Member Name) Name on the Account Receiving the Funds
Beneficiary Account Number (CESFCU Account Number) Account Number Receiving the Funds


Skip A Payment

CESFCU offers qualifying members the opportunity to skip loan payments up to two times a calendar year for qualifying loans. 

To skip the next CESFCU loan payment, complete, sign, and return the Skip A Pay form.

Members can authorize CESFCU to extend their final loan payment by one or two months annually. No payment will be required on your loan in the month(s) skipped; however, you will be required to resume your regularly scheduled payment(s) the following month. There is a $25.00 non-refundable processing fee per loan per month skipped. Interest will continue to accrue on the loan(s) during the month(s) skipped. Loan payments made through Payroll Deduction, Direct Deposit or ACH will be deposited into the Savings Account for the month(s) skipped. If accounts/loans at the credit union are not in good standing, this request is invalid. The first full contractual payment must be applied to the loan before being considered for a skip payment. If the processing fee is not included with the Skip A Pay application, the request will be denied, and the regular payment(s) will be required (or applied in the case of an automatic payment). A maximum of two skip payments are available per loan each calendar year. CESFCU reserves the right to deny any request. Multiple skips may reduce potential GAP claim or credit insurance benefits. Contact your provider for details.

VISA loans are excluded from Skip A Payments.


GAP Insurance

CESFCU members can take advantage of our Guaranteed Asset Protection or GAP coverage through GAPWise (Wise F&I).

Did you know that if your vehicle is stolen or totaled in a major accident, your loss could add up to more than its value? Most insurance policies only protect the actual cash value or market value of the vehicle at the time of the loss, which means you could receive less than the amount you owe. GAP insurance pays the difference between the actual cash value or market value of the vehicle and the amount owed on your vehicle. You can protect your investment with GAP. It covers the 'gap' between the vehicle's value and the amount you still owe. Why pay more at the dealership? CESFCU offers a very competitive rate usually less than what most dealerships offer.

Let’s say your vehicle is totaled in an accident. You still owe $25,000 on the loan, but your insurance only pays you the current value less your deductible, which is $21,000.

What you owe: $25,000
Actual cash value of vehicle: $21,000
Less your insurance deductible: $1,000
Insurance company pays you: $20,000
    This leaves you with an outstanding debt of:     $5,000
