How does Zelle work?

Answer

When you enroll with Zelle  through online Bill Pay or the SeaWest mobile banking app, your name, the name of your credit union, and the email address or U.S. mobile number you enrolled is shared with Zelle  (no sensitive account details are shared – those stay with SeaWest Coast Guard Federal Credit Union).

When someone sends money to your enrolled email address or U.S. mobile number, Zelle looks up the email address or mobile number in its “directory” and notifies SeaWest Coast Guard FCU of the incoming payment. SeaWest then directs the payment into your bank account, all while keeping your sensitive account details private.
