Direct deposit payments are deposited right into your bank account by your employer or another depositor.
You can often set up direct deposit payments for regular transfers by completing a direct deposit from and handing it to your payroll department. With direct deposit, your money could be ready on the same business day it’s released - as there’s no need to wait for a check to clear, it’s usually one of the fastest ways to get paid.
To set up direct deposit to your Chase Total Checking account, or another eligible Chase account, you’ll need to complete the Chase direct deposit forms².
Hand or send your Chase direct deposit slip, with a voided check to your payroll department for processing. The deposit forms need the following information:
- Your name
- Your full address
- The correct Chase routing number
- Your employer’s name and address
- Your employee ID number or account number
- Your signature
You can set up Chase direct deposit in just a few steps¹:
- Complete the Chase direct deposit form - there’s even a prefilled document available in Chase’s phone app to make this easier.
- Hand the form and a voided check to your employer’s payroll department.
- If you’re eligible, the direct deposit will be set up and your money will be deposited into your Chase account.
- Review and track payments in the Chase online banking system.
Once you’ve handed your paperwork to your employer, it could take up to 2 pay cycles for direct deposit to take effect. Direct deposits are usually received quickly after the payment is released by your employer - you’re also able to set up direct deposit alerts online and in the Chase banking app, to know when your paycheck arrives to your account.
Chase does not publish fixed direct deposit delivery times online. However, current users reviewing the service online suggest payments are often available on the day they are released by your employer. Check with your payroll department to learn more.
If you have a Chase account already, setting up direct deposit to get your salary or government benefits can be very convenient. In fact, some employers require you to have direct deposit set up for payroll, as it’s cheaper and easier to process. Here are a few pros to consider, if you’re still unsure about using direct deposit:
- Direct deposits are free to arrange
- You’ll get your money more quickly compared to receiving a check
- No need to visit a bank to deposit your check
- You can’t lose or have your direct deposit stolen like you may a check
- No need to physically be in the office to get paid - your money simply arrives
Once your Chase direct deposit is up and running, you should receive it every payday without interruption. If your direct deposit is delayed, it might be because of a processing error, or because the bank received the payroll request later than usual. Contact your employer and your payroll department to check up.
At the time of writing, Chase does not offer an early direct deposit service.
Using direct deposit can be a quick and easy way to get your pay and government benefits as soon as possible. If you need to send money overseas once you’ve got your paycheck, you can get the same fast and convenient service using Wise.
Wise international payments use the mid-market exchange rate with no markups and no hidden fees. Arrange your transfer online and have the money paid direct to your recipient’s bank account, no matter where in the world they are. You’ll be able to see immediately how long your payment will take to arrive, with transfers often arriving much faster than your regular bank can manage.
If you’re not using direct deposit yet, you could be missing out. Don’t wait for pay checks to clear when you can get your money deposited conveniently into your account with no hassle.
