Get paid ASAP with Direct Deposit
Direct Deposits typically clear sooner than paper checks, which means you get your money faster - whether that's a paycheck or a benefit payment.
To set up your account for Direct Deposit, download and fill out the Patelco Direct Deposit authorization form. Then give the completed form to your employer or benefit provider.
If you need help, refer to the Guide to Patelco account numbers section below. (Your full checking account number can also be found by clicking or tapping on the checking account in Patelco Online™ and then selecting the Account Details tab.)
Share the love with automatic Payroll Disbursement
Automatically divide your paycheck among your Patelco accounts
When you use Direct Deposit, you also have the option of dividing your paycheck among your Patelco accounts. This is a great way to set up automatic saving for a large purchase, like a home down payment, a vehicle, or a vacation.
To set up a Payroll Disbursement, complete this disbursement form1 and mail it back to Patelco. (Our address is on the form.)
When you fill out this form, remember to use the correct account number formats to ensure your money is disbursed correctly.
For Checking Accounts, Money Market Accounts and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), account numbers are 14 digits long, beginning with 746. (Your full checking account number can also be found on your checks, or by clicking or tapping on the checking account in Patelco Online™ and then selecting the Account Details tab.)
For example, checking account 12345-10 should be listed as 74600001234510 (746 + 0000 + 12345 + 10) on the form.
Savings and HSA numbers include only the account number and suffix, which must be separated by a dash.
