Banking is Made Easy with Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is the fast, easy and convenient way to receive your pay. It enables your employer to electronically send the funds directly to your financial institution, where they are deposited into the account(s) you specify. By making simple arrangements and completing the necessary forms, your money can be safely deposited to your account.

What Qualifies for Direct Deposit?

In addition to employer paychecks, direct deposit can be used for many periodic payments. Social Security Income, Supplemental Security Income, Civil Service Retirement Income, Veterans Administration Compensation and Pension, and Armed Forces and Federal salaries are all examples of the types of income that can be directly deposited to your account.

Additionally, you can get direct deposit of certain types of interest, such as interest from earnings on savings accounts or certificates.


When you set up direct deposit at Dollar Bank, you'll benefit in several ways:

  • Safety
    When you use direct deposit your funds won't be stolen, misplaced or lost because there is no paper check. Your check is electronically transferred to your account, eliminating the need for a paper check.
  • Faster Access to Funds
    You can use your money right away and there is no waiting for the check to clear.
  • Freedom to Travel
    Direct deposit allows you to travel, confident that your funds will be deposited; you don't have to be home to receive them. You'll have peace of mind knowing that checks will not sit unprotected in your mailbox.
  • Convenience
    You'll no longer have to make special trips to the bank to deposit your check. You may also save time, gas and parking fees.
  • Ease of Verification
    Verification of a deposit is simple; log in to your Online Banking account to view your account activity. Don’t have Online Banking? Sign up here!
