How to set up direct deposit

Discover the benefits of bank direct deposits and how to manage them. Setting up your direct deposit is simple; all you need are some direct deposit forms from whoever is paying you and a voided check.

Obtain direct deposit form from your employer

Many employers offer direct deposit services to their employees. Simply obtain a direct deposit form from your human resources specialist. Be ready with your routing number, checking account number and a voided check. Some employers may need additional information, so be sure to ask your employer what information they need from you to ensure your funds are directly deposited.

Check Image
  • Your bank's ABA or routing number. This nine-digit number is found on the bottom left of your checks.
  • Your checking account number. This is the main number for your checking account that you use for all deposits and withdrawals. It is found on the bottom of the check directly to the right of the routing number.
  • You may need to submit a voided check. This will allow the employer to verify the above information. Write VOID in large letters in ink across the check, covering most lines so that nothing else can be written in on the check.
  • Your Bank's Address. Use this branch locator to find your nearest Citizens Bank branch address.

Use direct deposit for improved financial management

  • No paper. With direct deposit services, there are no checks to worry about getting lost or stolen.
  • Same day balance availability. Direct deposit provides you with same day access to your money—you can draw on your funds the same day your check is issued.
  • Save time. Because your funds are put into your account for you, there’s no need to run to the bank, wait in line, or find an ATM.
  • Eliminate weekend and holiday pay delay. If a payday falls on a weekend or holiday, directly deposited funds are typically transferred into your account in advance.
  • Build your savings. Direct deposit can also help you build your savings quickly and easily if you have a portion of your money deposited directly to your savings.
