Direct Deposit

Take Advantage of Our Direct Deposit Service

Direct Deposit is the convenient and fast way to have your money deposited directly into your checking or savings accounts. It’s also secure because it reduces the risk of ID theft or mail fraud.

The most common use for Direct Deposit is for payroll checks. You allow your employer to electronically transfer money into your account. So instead of taking the time to deposit a check yourself, the money will automatically be deposited into your account on an agreed upon date.

While Direct Deposit is most often used for payroll checks, it can also be used for other recurring payments including:

  • Annuities
  • Bonuses and commissions
  • Dividends and interest payments
  • Pensions
  • Travel expense reimbursements

Easy to Set Up

To set up direct deposit just complete the Direct Deposit Online Form (PDF) here, attach a voided check and give it to your employer’s payroll representative.

All active duty, retired/veteran or reserve military, DOD, and DFAS civilian employees can also sign up for direct deposit through My Pay.

To sign up for direct deposit for Social Security, Supplementary Security, or other federal benefit checks, visit Go Direct.
