There is no cost to enroll in the Direct Deposit Program and participation can easily be terminated if you decide that you no longer wish to enjoy the safety and security. Deposits will begin to go directly to your bank or credit union within 2-3 pay periods following submission of your application. You will receive a paycheck within 1-2 pay periods following submission of your written request to terminate your participation.
