Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit

Don’t let bad weather or a busy schedule delay your deposit! With the convenience of automatic Direct Deposit, payments reach your account the day the check is issued - even if you are out of town, sick or unable to get to the bank. And your funds are available on the day of receipt!

You can even start building your savings by having a portion of your money deposited directly to your savings account.

If you’d like to start a new Direct Deposit, use routing number 074900657 along with your account number or stop by a local banking center to learn more.
