Add an external account using micro-deposits

When you link an external account for the first time using this method, Arkansas Federal will make two deposits less than $1 into the external account. You will need to verify those deposit amounts with Arkansas Federal before you can transfer money between the external account and your Arkansas Federal accounts. Please allow enough time for this process to occur before you need to make your first transfer.  This process can take approximately three days.
