Choosing Direct Deposit

Choosing Direct Deposit

February 25, 2014

Direct Deposit electronically transfers your payments to your bank account while keeping your payroll information strictly confidential. Each payday, the net of your paycheck is available in the morning. Also, you can view via At Your Service Online (AYSO) your detailed earnings statement itemizing your pay and deductions. 

Direct deposit is available across the United States with most financial institutions, including the University Credit Union, participating in the service.  Many banks offer special benefits like reduced service fees for accounts that receive Direct Deposit.

Benefits of Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is safe and convenient. It greatly minimizes the chances of problems since there are no checks to be misplaced, lost or stolen, and there is no delay in receipt of funds, even if you are out of town. It is a good way to avoid having to take your paycheck to the bank for deposit or your funds being unavailable because you were out sick, on vacation or too busy to get to the bank on payday.
