Get ACH Deposit Instructions

This request returns the Folio ACH deposit bank account information for clients to set up ACH transfers from their bank account to deposit money into their brokerage account.

These instructions may also be used to instruct users when setting up direct deposit from an employer to their brokerage account and tax refunds from federal and state authorities to their brokerage account.

Note: There are numerous restrictions related to deposits into different types of brokerage accounts based upon account and user characteristics (e.g., no contributions into a beneficiary IRA or any IRA when the account owner is over 70½ years old, etc.) which will be checked when sent through this API and or when the funds are received at Folio. Learn more in the Folio Institutional Help Center.
