If I setup my Direct Deposit, how long will it take to start working?

Generally, it takes 1-2 pay periods for your employer or benefits provider to start depositing your check in your prepaid account.

Am I eligible for Direct Deposit?

Yes. Most employers and benefits providers offer direct deposit as an option to get your money. Check with your employer or benefits provider to verify.

When will the money from my payroll check be available with Direct Deposit?

Direct Deposit is the fastest way to get paid and avoid the hassles of dealing with a paper check. With Direct Deposit your funds are electronically deposied into your card account so there's no waiting for a check to clear. Once you set up Direct Deposit with your Employer or Benefits Provider, AccountNow will process deposits as soon as they are received-which may be up to 2 days faster than you would normally receive a check from your employer or benefits provider.

How much does Direct Deposit cost?

AccountNow offers direct deposit at no cost. This service is easy to set up and a convenient way to access your cash immediately without paying check cashing fees.

Can I use Direct Deposit to deposit my tax refund?

Yes. You can direct deposit tax refunds or other one time payments from institutions that offer direct deposit. Use the routing number and Direct Deposit Account (DDA) number provided on your direct deposit form. There is a Direct deposit limit of $10,000, so if you expect your tax refund to be more than $10,000 you should not set up direct deposit because the deposit will be refused.
