How does a renter verify their bank account?
On Cozy, you can connect your bank account using your online bank login or by manually entering your bank details.
Before we start sending payments from that bank account, we need to make sure that you're the account holder!
If you link your bank account to Cozy using your online bank login, it'll be automatically verified. We don't support logins for all banks right now, so you might need to enter in your account and routing number to link your account. In this article, we'll show how to verify your account if you've added it manually using your account and routing number.
Manual bank verification: First Step
When you enter a new bank account, we'll send two small deposits (both less than $1), to your bank account within 1-3 business days.
The deposits will say `APTS` in the description.
Manual Verification: Second Step
Once you see these amounts in your bank account, enter them on your Banks & Cards by clicking on "Verify Amounts".
Manual Verification: Third Step
If the two amounts you enter are correct, your bank account will be immediately verified and the process will be complete:
It's been 3 business days- where are the deposits?
If you only see one deposit, contact your bank to help locate them. Sometimes banks combine amounts this small.
If you see a "Deposits failed" message, this means that we couldn't locate a bank account using the details you entered. Try re-adding your bank account and we'll resend the small deposits.
If it's been over a week since you connected your bank account, we've probably pulled the deposits back since these were temporary. Try checking your bank account around the time you entered your account details as your bank should still have a record of what was deposited.
