[Discussion] How to transfer $ from Mom’s Wells Fargo account to mine?

June 27, 2020 at 01:53AM

We don't share any accounts and live in different states.

My mom usually sends me a check, but the last check got lost in the mail, so she is paranoid now. I'm trying to figure out how to do this electronically, but it's not easy. She's old school, so will not sign up for the Zelle or Venmo apps. I looked into doing electronic transfers in the online banking, but it seems to only allow transfers between your own wells fargo accounts our your own outside bank accounts and no place to add a wells fargo account for somebody else. She doesn't want to wire transfer as that costs $. Is there anything else I'm not thinking of? Could she use bill pay – would that be electronic, or would that just mail me a check?

I was also thinking that she could just write me a check and go to the bank to deposit it in my account, but she doesn't want to go inside the bank for COVID-19 reasons.
