Transfers between Bank of America accounts that you submit on bank business days before the daily cutoff time will be credited to your account on the same business day. Transfers submitted after the cutoff time or on a non-business day will be credited on the next bank business day. The crediting of funds depends on the type of account you are transferring to and the state in which the account was opened.

Recurring transfers can be made at regular intervals such as once a week, once a month, every 3 months and more.

SafePass is an optional extra layer of protection for Small Business Online Banking. SafePass provides you with a 6-digit, one-time-use code sent as a text message to your registered mobile device or generated from a wallet-sized card. There is a one-time fee for the SafePass Card. (Visit the SafePass page to see fee details.) The mobile version is free, though your mobile carrier may charge you for text messaging. Please check your mobile service agreement for details on applicable fees.
After you have enabled SafePass, you will be prompted to enter the SafePass code you receive when:
- Adding new transfer and Bill Pay accounts and payees
- Making large transfers
- Verifying your identity without SiteKey® questions
- Signing in to Small Business Online Banking (optional)
If you choose to use SafePass, some online activities will be automatically protected while some can be optionally protected. Most actions will only require that you use SafePass just a few times per month. You can select which actions you want protected by SafePass by visiting the SafePass settings page.
SafePass is considered part of 2-factor authentication, which uses something you know (for example, your Passcode) and something you have (SafePass code via mobile device) to verify your identity.
