How do I sign up for direct deposit?

Your employer or the government agency that issues your checks is responsible for setting up direct deposit and sending the funds to your Stanford FCU account. Send us a secure Message through Online or Mobile Banking and we’ll send you a form with all the information your employer needs. You’ll get your funds up to two days before payday, because we’ve always posted payroll as soon as we receive your direct deposit!

You can also fill out a form provided by your employer or the government agency. You will need the following information:

  • On the bottom of your checks:
