You may add funds to your deposit account as often as you like by using one of the following four options:
Visit the Office of Finance Online Shopping Page to view your current balance and replenish your deposit account using electronic funds transfer (EFT).
Note: Please verify with your financial institution that EFT payments can be processed through your checking or savings account before creating an EFT account. If you have an ACH/EFT block or filter on your account, you must provide your financial institution with the USPTO's ACH company ID number to have your account set up properly before submitting EFT payments. The USPTO's ACH company ID number is 1310000101.
Replenish by Wire
See the instructions for sending a wire payment to the USPTO. Please ensure the deposit account number is provided to prevent delays in processing your payment. Funds must be received by noon ET to be credited and available in your deposit account on the day of transfer.

Coming Soon: Financial Manager
In early 2016, the USPTO will launch Financial Manager, a new online fee payment management tool. Replenishment options after the release of Financial Manager will include:
- All existing replenishment options will remain available, including mailed checks
- Financial Manager will introduce a new auto-replenishment feature, allowing customers to specify an amount to charge an active, stored EFT when the deposit account balance reaches or falls below a customer defined threshold
For additional information on how Financial Manager will impact deposit account management processes, check out the Deposit Account Management section of the Financial Manager FAQs page.
