Account Status

Verify bank accounts instantly with our Verify API. Verify determines within 15 seconds whether an account is open and valid. The API initiates verification utilizing RTP or FedNow penny deposits (Orum’s penny) and pulls back the information from the real-time ping. If RTP and FedNow are unavailable, the API automatically falls back to Same-Day ACH. In that scenario, the maximum time to verify account status would be T+3 business days. In addition, Verify confirms ownership and we push that information back to you via webhook.

Verify Webhooks
