How do I add or authenticate a bank?
First, select Profile & account settings under the My Accounts dropdown in the main navigation.
Next, select Bank Information in the Banking and Money Movement section.
Then, choose the ADD A NEW BANK ACCOUNT button above your active banks list.
Fill in the required information on the Add a new bank page: Routing number, Account number, and Personal account owner. You can also give your newly added bank a nickname and/or make it your primary bank. Select CONTINUE to proceed.
Next, review your bank and account information and choose any additional accounts that will be authorized to use this bank account. Then, select REVIEW.
Review your information and choose CONTINUE TO E-SIGN.
Note that your bank authorization is not complete until you’ve completed the micro-deposit process to validate your bank information. Over the next 2-3 business days, you will receive two micro-deposits (less than $1) from Vanguard into the bank account you added. When this happens, return to Vanguard.com and navigate to your Bank information page to enter those deposit amounts.
Review the authorization agreement and answer your security question at the bottom before selecting the SIGN & SUBMIT button.
You’ve now started the bank authorization process. Look for two Vanguard micro-deposits to validate your bank information. Follow the steps listed to complete the micro-deposit process and fully validate your bank information.
