You work hard for your money. Wouldn’t it be nice to get it sooner?

We’re thrilled to announce that OCCU members now have the benefit of accessing money from direct deposits early!

We’ve talked before about the benefits of direct deposit. The convenience. The security. Now we can add speed to the list! When you have your paycheck direct-deposited, it could hit your account up to three days earlier.*

What accounts does this apply to?

Direct deposits into these accounts will arrive up to three days early: 

  • Checking accounts.
  • Business checking accounts.
  • Savings accounts.
  • Business savings accounts.
  • Money market accounts.
  • … And more!

If you haven’t already seen a deposit hit your account early, you will soon. There’s no cost and no need to enroll beyond having direct deposit set up. It’s just a perk of being an OCCU member. 

Get what’s coming to you. 

You’ve earned your paycheck. Why wait for it any longer than you have to?


*Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. OCCU may, but shall not be required to under any circumstances, make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to three (3) days earlier than the scheduled payment date. OCCU does not assume any liability for not depositing these funds to your account early. OCCU may terminate early access at any time without notice.
