Whether you’re familiar with ACH or some of its more common names — Direct Deposit, Direct Payment, direct debit, electronic funds transfer (EFT), or an electronic check (eCheck) — you’re already benefiting from its speed, security and ease of use.
When you wake up on payday and see your pay deposited in your account at your financial institution.
When you receive your tax return or Social Security benefit.
When your car loan is paid automatically every month.
Tell your employer you’d like to be paid electronically with Direct Deposit.
Your employer will provide you a simple form that authorizes electronic deposits into your checking and/or savings accounts. We recommend both with Split Deposit.
Once the authorization form is finalized, your employer will tell you when to expect to start receiving your pay electronically.
