See below. What is the point in asking us to "write or call"? It's done right? Why is it fair for me to pay $30 to velocity & $15 to my bank, a total of $45 every time I withdraw money? A $540 per year expense even if I withdraw money monthly? Agreed, checks suck. But why not provide ACH option to push money to my bank account before getting rid of checks? Completely free for everyone involved with no mess. A major chunk of my money that I am not actively using for margin is leaving VF by the end of the month. Yes, it will be a paper check. Outgoing Check Policy Change ** ATTENTION U.S. CUSTOMERS ** Effective 2/1/2013, all withdrawals for funds from trading accounts must be transacted via outgoing wire transfers as we will no longer support the option to request outgoing checks. Please note that before requesting an outgoing wire from your account, you will need to add complete banking information to your customer portal. We regret any inconvenience to you; however, this change has become necessary due to various service issues surrounding the issuance and delivery of checks. Please write or call if you have any questions concerning this policy change.
