How Direct Deposit Actually Works
Would you like to enable Direct Deposit?
This is a common question employers are asking teens during the hiring process. While this question seems straightforward for seasoned employers, many teens starting their first job remain unsure how to answer the question or respond without understanding what Direct Deposit is.
For starters, Direct Deposit is a service most frequently used for payroll that allows employers to electronically transfer money into your savings or checking account. This streamlined process is a safe and secure way that eliminates the need of a tangible paycheck. Direct Deposit allows the money to go straight into your amount during every pay cycle determined by your employer. Therefore, you never need to physically deposit a check at your local provider.
Direct Deposit is a simple tool that ensures both security and reliability. Through its electronic measures, Direct Deposit provides safety, as checks can no longer be misplaced, stolen, or lost in the mail service.
While Direct Deposit offers convenience and security, it also becomes easy to loose track of your income. Some employers distribute paystubs during a pay cycle, but not all employers offer this service. Regardless of whether or not your employer offers this service, Direct Deposit is a great window for mobile banking.
