Frequently Asked Questions by our new members
How do I sign up for Direct Deposit/Payroll Deduction?
Simply fill out a direct deposit/payroll deduction form available at the credit union or your payroll department. Most members sign-up for direct deposit/payroll deduction when they open their account but you can sign up for payroll deduction at any time during your membership. You can change your deduction at any time by filling out a new form.
The company where I am now employed does not belong to the credit union. How do I deposit my paycheck?
Most companies offer Direct Deposit. If your company does, all you need is your credit union account number and our ABA# 271081939. It’s that easy.
