Direct Deposit

Getting started.

Enjoy the benefits of direct deposit.

It’s fast, convenient and safe!

What is direct deposit?

It is an electronic payment from one bank account to another. 

Why should I set up direct deposit?

Direct deposit gives you the convenience of immediate access to funds.  You don’t have to worry about lost or stolen checks, trips to the bank, or forgetting to make the deposit.

How do I set up direct deposit?

1 – Ask for a direct deposit form from your employer

2 – Complete the information including routing number, type of account and your account number (some employers ask for additional information)

3 – Confirm the deposit amount (100% in one account, or splitting deposits)

4 – Attach a voided check or a deposit slip

5 – Submit the form to your employer

Once it’s set up, what do I need to do? 

Nothing.  You will receive funds via a direct deposit.  Your account balance will increase automatically when the payment arrives. You don’t have to accept the payment or deposit funds.

Is direct deposit safe?

Yes.  Since your money goes directly in the bank via electronic transfer, there’s no risk of it being lost or stolen.
