About Woodforest National Bank
Woodforest National Bank has been in operation since 1980 and provides a variety of different products and services.

This unique approach is one that rewards loyal employees for sticking with Woodforest for as long as possible in their banking career.
Currently, Woodforest National Break has spread throughout multiple states, including Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, Ohio, West Virginia, and even Texas. There are 700 different locations spread out across the country, making it easy to find a branch that can help you out if you decide to invest your cash with this bank.

Wiring Money With Woodforest
Wiring money domestically with Woodforest is done using Clearing House Interbank Payment System (or CHIPS) or Fedwire. These are real-time transfers that should take place immediately (or at least on the same day) and allow the sender to access the money as quickly as possible. When wiring money, you need to provide the bank name, the routing number, your account number, the bank address, and pay a fee of $10 per incoming and $20 for outgoing.
Currently, there is no method for sending this money online. As a result, you need to go directly to your Woodforest National Bank branch and fill out a Wire Transfer Request Form. Fill out all of the fields required on the form and then submit it to a teller. After they look over the information and confirm its accuracy, you must pay the fee before they send it.
International transfers are done in the same way, though there is no Swift number to use for this service. You’ll also have to pay fees of $35 for incoming and $65 for outgoing money. All other currency changes will go into effect on your cash as well, making it essential to plan your transfer before doing it.

Q: What fees do I pay for overdraft protection?
If you overdraft your account by less than $1.00, you don’t have to pay any price. However, you will have to pay an extra $29 every time that Woodforest National Bank offers you overdraft protection. They will only provide three of these protective measures in a day. Beyond that, they will also limit your monthly fees depending on the overdraft limit you created when you created your account.
Q: What is a simple business checking account?
A simple business account is designed for companies that have relatively low monthly transaction volumes. It is best for personal businesses or those with less than 10-15 employees. You need to deposit at least $100 to open the account and must keep a balance of at least $5,000 to avoid a monthly service charge. If you have less than that in your account, you will receive a $12 monthly service fee. You will also be charged $0.25 per charge after you pass 250.
