What is direct deposit?
It's a safe, convenient and FREE way to have your paycheck deposited directly into your account each payday. No more waiting in line. Your paycheck will be available to you the morning of your payday. You may choose from two different methods:
- Full Direct Deposit. Have your full paycheck deposited each payday.
- Partial Direct Deposit. Have a specific dollar amount deposited each payday. Also, keep in mind that if your payroll is ever less than the amount you have specified for direct deposit, nothing will be sent to the Credit Union.
Who can have direct deposit?
Direct deposit is available to current employees of or retired from:
- Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS).
- Miami Dade College (MDC - Full Time Employees).
*As a part-time Miami Dade College (MDC) employee, you may still have direct deposit. Simply fill out the direct deposit form and send the completed form to MDC — Human Resources.
What if I work somewhere other than M-DCPS or MDC?
Talk to your employer. You may be able to have your payroll deposited through ACH. A credit union direct deposit form may be used to give to your employer.
