The Many Benefits of Choosing Direct Deposit

Younger workers might not have experienced this, but in years past, credit unions were flooded with folks trying to deposit their paychecks on Friday afternoons. Not only was this inconvenient and time-consuming, but depositing a paycheck the old-fashioned way meant waiting a few days for the check to clear. Today, most credit union members have embraced the many benefits of direct deposit. Once it’s set up, direct deposit lets your paycheck move directly from your employer to your checking account.

There’s no need to wait for the money to become available and there’s no need to wait on line on Friday afternoons. Electronic transfers of money are more secure, as they eliminate the risk of having a check get stolen or lost in the mail. Additionally, you’ll have the option of allocating a set percentage of your paycheck for your savings account. This means that you can save automatically and build your wealth over time.
