  1. Take the deposit envelope from the front of the ATM. No deposit slip is required

Electronically: You can use direct deposits or online banking to make deposits into your savings account.

Direct deposit:

  • If your paycheck is directly deposited into your checking account, your employer may be able to deposit a portion of your pay into your savings account.
  • Or, you can have your whole paycheck deposited into your savings account. Just provide your employer with your bank's routing number and your savings account number.

Making Transfers

Online or by phone: You can transfer funds between accounts online
One time transfer - If you have money in checking that you want to move to savings, you can do a one-time transfer.
