More to know when setting up your direct deposit
If you like, you can split your direct deposit into multiple accounts. For example, you can deposit half your paycheck or federal benefits into your checking account and half into your savings.
Also, it can take a few weeks for your direct deposit to start—depending on when your employer sets it up. Until then, you'll continue to receive paper checks.

More ways to manage your money
Funds from your direct deposit are made immediately available for you to use. Your direct deposit posts to your account on the business day it is scheduled to be credited by the bank. A business day is every day, except Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. Should your direct deposit be scheduled for a non-business day, your deposit will be made on the first business day after that date.
