Additional Help & Information
1 Depends on when your payor sends funds. Early direct deposit is available for GLCU members with a checking or savings account who have set up electronic direct deposit with their employer or other payor into their eligible GLCU checking or savings account. Certain non-payroll and tax payments are not eligible for early direct deposit. Direct deposits may be available up to one day before the settlement date (the date your payor tells GLCU to release the funds to you), however GLCU is dependent on the timing of your payor’s payment instructions so you may not see all direct deposits, or every direct deposit, arrive early.
