Direct Deposit
Most employers offer direct deposit of your pay to the financial institution of your choice.  We accept direct deposits from any employer, as well as from all government agencies and pension and investment companies.  When signing up for direct deposit 
or automatic withdrawals, you need to know our routing and transit or ABA number.  Our number is 243380833.  You will also need to know your credit union account number which can be found on your credit union statement.  

Payroll Deductions
Many of our employer groups offer payroll deduction as a means to transfer payroll funds to the credit union.  Payroll deduction forms can be filled out at the credit union office or with your employer.  Some employers prefer to offer only direct deposit.  Check with the credit union or your employer to see what method of deposit is available to you.

What is the difference between Direct Deposit and Payroll Deduction?
Direct Deposit usually involves depositing all of your paycheck electronically into your account at the credit union.  When using payroll deduction, a portion of your pay is automatically deposited into your account.
