Payroll Deduction FAQs

How can I sign up for Payroll Deduction?

To sign up for payroll deduction please contact your employer to find out if this service is available or call our Member Service Center. If your employer offers payroll deduction you will need to fill out our Payroll Deduction Form. This form can be completed at any branch or a Member Service Representative can help you over the telephone.

Once the form has been completed there might be a delay on the actual start date of the first deduction. This could be due to postal mail delays and/or the actual set up by your employer.

What is the difference between Direct Deposit and Payroll Deduction?

With direct deposit, your paycheck, retirement or government-issued check is electronically transferred and deposited into your credit union account every pay period. With payroll deduction, a pre-determined portion of your net pay is automatically deposited into your account(s) every pay period.

I want money to go to my different accounts or loans. How can I do this?

With payroll deduction and automatic transfer, you can allot various amounts of money to go to your accounts and sub-accounts, your spouse's or children's accounts or on your loan.

Allotments may be changed at any time.
