Direct Deposit & Payment

What are the advantages of ACH? Take Direct Deposit via ACH as an example:

  • Your hard-earned salary is in the bank on payday. There’s no need to pick up a check and take it to the bank (where they might even put a hold on the funds).
  • Getting a tax refund? Even the IRS website says “the best and fastest way to get your tax refund is to have it electronically deposited for free.”

Paying bills is also easy with Direct Payment via ACH:

  • From credit cards to mortgage payments to car insurance and more, direct payment ends the worrying about whether your check will arrive on time—or worse, get lost or stolen in the mail.
  • Electronic payments pass through fewer hands than a paper check, making it a safer, more confidential way to do business.
