At Public, we use the nation's largest bank connection provider, Plaid. While we are officially connected with all major banks and most other financial institutions, if your personal bank is not listed, it’s likely to be added in the near future.
In the meantime, there are other ways to fund your Public account, and they are generally painless. See below:
Please contact your bank to initiate a wire from your bank account. Provide the following wire information below. Please note this is for our Clearing Firm, Apex. Be sure to include your Name and Account number in the for further credit section, as this helps ensure it is applied to your account right away. After initiating a wire transfer, please let us know the date, amount, and if possible, obtain the Fed Reference number of your wire and send it to our Member Support team via in-app chat or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help us locate your wire transfer as quickly as possible.
