Set Up Direct Deposit

Why spend precious time going to the bank? Direct deposit is the easy, worry-free way to have electronic deposits - like paychecks or Social Security payments - deposited automatically into your U.S. Bank checking or savings account. Learn how to set up direct deposit below.

How Direct Deposit Works

Direct deposit places qualified deposits such as salary, pension and Social Security payments automatically into your checking account or savings account - it’s convenient, simple and secure.

Deposits are made electronically, so you never have to worry about losing a paycheck or going to the bank. Moreover, it’s much faster than paper deposits, letting you access your money on the day of the deposit.
