How do I set up direct deposit?

Direct deposit provides an easier, faster and safer way to access your money.

  • Eliminates extra trips to the bank
  • Reduces the risk of misplaced, stolen or lost checks
  • Provides the option to split your deposits between checking and savings accounts

To set up direct deposit:

Talk with your employer to see if direct deposit is available. If so, you can:

Visit Go Direct (opens in a new tab) to set up direct deposit for Social Security and other federal benefits.

You'll need to know your BB&T bank routing number.
