Deposits

You must sign up for Direct Deposit through your payroll office or other depositing institutions (government checks, for example).

To complete a Direct Deposit form, you'll need your PSECU ten-digit account number and our ABA/Transit Routing Number – 231381116.

New members – Please wait to receive your Welcome packet before you sign up for Direct Deposit. Receipt of the packet signals that your account is active and ready for your use.

 

In addition to cash, the following items are acceptable for deposit through the ATM: personal checks; money orders; traveler's checks; rebate checks; and insurance checks. Foreign checks or foreign money orders cannot be deposited through the ATM. As a general rule, the payee(s) should endorse all checks on the back only. Failure to endorse these items correctly may result in the deposit being  reversed from your account.

  • Personal checks – Need to be made payable to you (not PSECU or Cash) and all required signatures need to be completed on the front and  all required endorsements need to be completed on the back of the personal check.
  • Money orders – Must be signed on the “Purchasers Signature” line, made payable to you (not PSECU or Cash) and all required signatures need to be completed on the front and back of the money order.
  • Traveler's checks – Must be signed and countersigned on the signature lines and need to be made payable to you (not PSECU or Cash) and signed properly.
  • Rebate checks – Make sure PSECU receives the rebate check before the expiration date. These checks must be endorsed.
  • Insurance – Special endorsement rules apply to insurance checks. Typically, these checks are made payable to PSECU and one person (or persons) listed on the insurance claim. The checks MUST be endorsed by all payees listed on the front of the check. If you have any questions, please contact PSECU at 800.237.7328, extension 3872. If the check is made payable to a different business and the member, the business must use the "Without Recourse" stamp.

 

Checks that include notations that are not endorsements as described above - examples include "payment in full," "for full satisfaction," "not valid after 30 days." and "two signatures required" - will be processed according to our standard procedures. See the Checking Agreement within PSECU's Agreements & Disclosures Booklet.

You can deposit into any ATM that accepts deposits. If you're using a non-PSECU ATM and you do not see a deposit option displayed on the screen after you insert your card, the ATM owner does not participate in deposit sharing. If the machine does accept deposits, simply follow the instructions as they appear on the ATM screen. We recommend saying "yes" when asked about a receipt.
