Do you have regular income you could directly deposit into a checking account? There are many benefits of direct deposit: it’s convenient, ensures that your money is available more quickly, and can save you the step of going into a branch or visiting an ATM to deposit a check each time you are paid. You can also feel reassured the money is directly going into your account, which can help you avoid the risk of a lost or stolen check.

By setting up direct deposit, you can decide how much money is allocated towards each account. For example, you can put half into your savings account and half into your checking account. By enrolling in Huntington Direct Deposit, you get immediate access to your funds with your debit card as soon as your direct deposit is received. You can also set up Mobile Deposit Alerts, so you’ll know the moment your direct deposit has been received. Here’s how to get started with setting up direct deposit.

  1. Fill out a Direct Deposit Form.
  2. Identify your routing and account number, which you can find at the bottom of your checks. You can also find those numbers online (on the account summary tab) when you are logged into Huntington Online Banking or by visiting a Huntington branch.
  3. Provide a blank, voided check (if requested by your employer).
  4. Submit the Direct Deposit Form. Once the form is filled out, simply give it to your employer’s HR department.

If you’re a Huntington checking customer, setting up a direct deposit could help you get access to your pay early. It’s not a loan, just your pay delivered automatically up to two days early if you qualify. No need to sign up. No cost. No catch.ΩΩ
