Early Direct Deposit FAQs

How does Early Direct Deposit work?

Many times, if you have a direct deposit established for your paycheck or recurring federal benefits, your employer or applicable federal agency will send information for direct deposit of your paycheck or recurring benefits payment to your designated account up to two days before the scheduled payment date. When this occurs, we will make these funds available to you on the day we receive the payment information instead of waiting until the scheduled payment date to make them available.

Will my paycheck or recurring payment always arrive two days early?

Early Direct Deposit depends on the timing of when we receive direct deposit payment information from your employer or federal agency. We cannot make funds available in your account before your employer or applicable federal agency sends us the direct deposit payment information. Your payment will not be made available in your account early if Piedmont Advantage does not receive the direct deposit payment information before the scheduled deposit date. 

What if I already have direct deposits with Piedmont Advantage Credit Union?

If you already have direct deposits set up with your employer or applicable federal agency to your Piedmont Advantage checking, money market, Share Savings, Personal Select Savings or Al Pacu Club Savings account, there are no required steps to take to get your payments early. As soon as we receive direct deposit information from your employer or applicable federal agency, which can be up to two days early, we will make these funds available to you.

Can I choose to stop receiving Early Direct Deposit?

No. Early Direct Deposit is a built-in account feature of all Piedmont Advantage checking, money market, Share Savings, Personal Select Savings and Al Pacu Club Savings accounts.  Early Direct Deposit will automatically apply if you have an eligible direct deposit set up to one of these accounts.
