Direct Deposit

Save yourself a visit to a branch or ATM to deposit a paper check by setting up direct deposit with SAFE. Direct deposit can also help you build savings effortlessly when you direct a portion of your paycheck into your preferred SAFE savings account.

Fast, convenient, and secure

In many cases, direct deposit allows you to receive your paycheck or federal benefit payments1 such as Social Security, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), VA Compensation, and pension a day early2.

Get started

Provide your payroll office with the SAFE Credit Union routing number (321173742) and your SAFE account number (also called the ACH number) where you would like your check deposited.

If your payroll office requires a blank check from your account to verify the information, be sure to write “VOID” on the check.

Direct Deposit Check

Or, print a copy of the SAFE direct deposit form and return it to your payroll office along with your voided check.
