How to request Direct Deposit

[MUSIC PLAYING] If you're looking for convenience, an easy way to budget your money and reduce reliance on paper checks all at the same time, you'll find all of it here with direct deposit. If you're a local government employee, you must initiate direct deposit at your employer's payroll office. If you're retiring, you may have to turn in forms to the agency processing your retirement. But you'll need a few pieces of information to take with you.

To get started with your direct deposit request, visit www.lgfcu.org and log in to Member Connect with your username and password. If you've forgotten your password, you can reset it by clicking the Forgot Password link and following the prompts. If you still need help, call the contact center at 888-732-8562.

Once logged into your account, click on the Services tab. Next, click on the Direct Deposit link. Then look to the right side of your screen and click on the ABA R/T number link. A new tab will open showing you where to locate LGFCU's routing transit number, as well as your account number. You'll need to share this information with your human resources office in order to initiate your LGFCU direct deposit.

If you're retiring and also want your social security payments direct deposited, return to your Direct Deposit tab and choose from one of the income sources in the box. Then, fill in the blanks. Once complete, hit Submit. Review the confirmation screen and hit OK. You should now have all the information you need to start your direct deposit. For additional help with enrolling in direct deposit, or for questions about your account, call the contact center at 888-732-8562.
