Reasons to Choose Direct Deposit
When you start a new job, your employer will give you the option of receiving a life payroll check or having your money directly deposited into a checking or savings account . While some individuals like the feeling of a real check, direct deposit offers a number of benefits.
Personal checks and other live checks take time to clear, which means that you will not have immediate access to your money when you deposit the check at the ATM or credit union. Direct deposit, on the other hand, posts to your account immediately and even gives you the opportunity to schedule automatic bill payments. Another reason to choose direct deposit is that it eliminates your risk of losing the check or having it stolen before it reaches your account.
Direct deposit is available to all GCS Credit Union customers who have a checking account. To set up this service or to learn more about our member services, contact us through our website or call our O’Fallon, Illinois credit union today at (618) 797-7993.
