We make it easy:
Fill out the Wire Transfer Request Form, print the form, and bring it into any American Savings Bank branch for immediate processing.
For same day processing, the Wire Transfer Request Form must be received before 11:00 a.m. (HST) Monday through Friday.
What's more, we can accept incoming wire transfers from any domestic bank for credit to your American Savings Bank deposit or loan account.
For same-day processing, the Wire Transfer Request Form must be received by our International Services Department no later than 10:00 a.m. (HST) Monday through Friday.
Effective October 28, 2013, due to new disclosure requirements for consumer international wires created by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for consumer protection, international wire requests are accepted on bank processing days only, Monday to Friday before 2:00 p.m. (HST) in person. Requests submitted by mail, fax or email will not be accepted.
The new rule does not apply to business international wires unless the wire is for personal, family or household purposes from Sole-Proprietorships.

Morgan Chase, New York or Bank of America, New York;....etc.) as Intermediary Bank then for onward transmission to American Savings Bank, Honolulu, Hawaii by Fedwire using ABA#321370765.
The format is as follows:
Beneficiary: Customer's Name
Beneficiary Account No.: American Savings Bank 10 digit account number
