Direct Deposit & Payroll Deduction 

Enjoy the safety and convenience of having your paychecks deposited automatically with Direct Deposit. Avoid teller lines on busy paydays by having the funds delivered directly from your employer into your Provident Credit Union account. You'll receive hassle-free access to your paycheck on the day it is paid, even if you're nowhere near a branch or ATM. If for some reason you don't want the entire paycheck deposited into your Provident Credit Union accounts, use Payroll Deduction to automatically deposit just a portion of each paycheck. Either way, get started now by completing a short form.
