The Benefits of Direct Deposit

The benefits of Direct Deposit are many and varied, but for starters, they include the following:

Direct Deposit is simple.

  • Once you have signed up for Direct Deposit, you don't have to go to the bank to deposit checks.
  • Your money is automatically deposited into your account on time, every time - and you don't have to be at work - or even in town!

Direct Deposit is safe.

  • Direct Deposit payments never get lost.
  • Direct Deposit is confidential. Money is transferred electronically and passes through fewer hands than a check.
  • Problems with Direct Deposit, which are rare, are quickly resolved.
  • A high percentage of identity theft starts with someone seeing your personal financial information on a paper check, billing statement, or bank account statement. Once electronic payments are set up, the money travels electronically, greatly reducing the number of people who see your personal information.

Direct Deposit is smart.

  • Direct Deposit gives you access to your money earlier than check deposits. There is no waiting for checks to clear.
  • Direct Deposit puts you in charge of your money. Financial planners recommend Direct Deposit as one step towards gaining control of your finances.
