Direct Deposit

Saving time and money is always a good idea

Direct deposit is a simple, secure and efficient way to pay your employees.


  • Avoid the time and expense associated with paying employees with checks
  • Simplify payroll distribution for offsite employees
  • Use direct deposit for expense reimbursements, pension payments and dividends
  • Enable employees to begin using direct deposit within 45 days of requesting the service
  • Offer employees the option of dividing deposits between checking and savings accounts

How it works

  • Collect the relevant bank account information from your participating employees
  • Combine this information with employee pay amounts and send this data to BB&T at least 2 business days before payday
  • Employees can access their money on the day of the deposit


Choose from these options for data transmission:

  • Transmit your direct deposit data file directly to BB&T
  • Choose a third-party payroll service to enable transmission of the direct deposit data to BB&T
