Direct Deposit (Electronic Funds Transfer)

General Frequently Asked Questions

Direct Deposit (Electronic Funds Transfer) is the electronic transfer of your paycheck, benefit check or other payment into your checking, share draft or savings account, or other low-cost account offered by your bank. Instead of receiving a check in the mail and taking it to your financial institution, you can rest assured that your money is in your account. The money is available to you the morning of the payment date.
