How to link HSBC and ING

Filed under: Uncategorized — heredago @ 23:44

You can link in two ways. Either you link ING within HSBC or HSBC within ING.

1) Link your HSBC within ING.

Log into your ING Account online.
Click the Tab “My Info and Options”.
Choose “Links to External Accounts”.
You should then see a list of your preexisting accounts linked to ING.
Click the “ADD” button.
Follow the directions.

I cannot recall the last time I did this, but I believe you may need to also send ING a void cheque from your HSBC Account. The Direct Savings account does provide you with Void Cheques. You will need to speak with your Account Manager. Call HSBC regular customer service line and ask the Rep for who your Account Manager/Phone number. This person will be in Vancouver so you will need to speak to them during normal PST Business Hours. A Week later you should receive 4 of them in the mail to send to ING.

AND/OR 2) Link ING within HSBC.

Log into HSBC online.
Click “Transfers”
Click “Transfer between HSBC accounts and other Canadian Banks”
Click “Add an Account”
Follow the directions.

This will involve you sending an ING paper statement to HSBC along with the Bank to Bank transfer form.

*What are the advantages of doing both 1) and 2)?*

Initiating the transfer from the sending bank account means the receiving bank will NOT hold the funds (ie.. You wish to send money from HSBC to ING – You would log into HSBC to initiate transfer to ING). If you initiate the transfer from the receiving account, the receiving bank will hold the funds for 5-10 business days.
