What is direct deposit?

Direct deposit is a safe and easy way to have your money deposited directly into your UTELFCU account.  Direct deposit allows a company, employer, or organization to electronically deposit money into your account on a scheduled basis, or a one-time only basis.  So, instead of taking the time to cash a check yourself, the money will automatically be deposited into your account on the appointed date.   It’s that simple!

why should i use direct deposit?

Direct deposit offers you many advantages over checks, including:

  • Convenience – No more special trips to the credit union to cash your check
  • Reliability – No more waiting for your check to arrive in the mail.  You can have peace of mind knowing your money will be in your account on time
  • Security – No more worrying about lost, stolen or misplaced checks
