Authorizing Transactions and Templates


Secondary authorization for Key Total Treasury-initiated wires is based at the user level. Limits are set per account. You can select secondary authorization for Key Total Treasury wires by completing the Payment Authorization form. Contact your Treasury Services Payments Advisor to set up wire entitlements.

Key Total Treasury wires can require up to two additional approvals after the wire is initiated before funds are released.

Wires awaiting secondary approval will not be processed. They will be held in a queue, pending approval, until 5:30 p.m. ET on the requested date of transmission. The Wire Department does not have the capability to release transfers that have not been authorized by the second approver because these wires do not leave Key Total Treasury.

Templates require a secondary approval before they are eligible for use. All templates must be approved by a second user before they can be utilized. Templates require an additional approval because clients often set higher approval limits for repetitive transactions.
