Direct Deposit

The Automatic, Convenient, and Confidential Way to Save Time and Money!
Direct deposit is a fast, secure way to automatically have your paycheck, retirement check, or any recurring automatic payment deposited into your People’s checking account. Thousands of members already enjoy the benefits of Direct Deposit.

Direct Deposit is easy to arrange!
Just complete a Direct Deposit Authorization Form and take it to your company's payroll office. This form designates People's Community Federal Credit Union as your financial institution.  You’ll need to add your personal information and a voided check.   You can also direct your Social Security or other Federal Government payments to be automatically deposited into your account using this Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form.  If you don't already have a checking account with People’s, open one today. View our Account Switch Kit for more information and forms.


Overdraft Protection

With overdraft protection, you know you have a safety-net. Avoid the high cost and embarrassment of overdrawing your account. Once approved for a personal line of credit, funds are transferred automatically to your checking account (up to your approved credit limit) to prevent your account from becoming overdrawn. You may also set-up automatic transfers from your savings account to cover potential overdrafts. Courtesy Pay is another option.

Courtesy Pay

Sometimes, unanticipated expenses can leave you with too little cash in your checking account. Having a check returned due to insufficient funds can be a costly, and potentially embarrassing experience. At People's we help to save you from the additional merchant fees (and possible damage to your credit history) that might result if a check is returned. That's why we provide Courtesy Pay, a special overdraft service for our members.

Courtesy Pay for checks and recurring debit card transactions does not require any action on your part. It simply provides you a safety net up to an automatically assigned overdraft limit. (Your limit will vary based on whether or not you have direct deposit to your checking account.) Your Courtesy Pay limit may be available for checks and other transactions made using your checking account.
