Phone Banking, Direct Deposit, e-Statements and Online Banking Tools

Staying on top of your finances is easy thanks to LAPFCU’s selection of useful links and tools.

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is the fastest, safest, and easiest way to deposit your paycheck. Avoid the delay of standing in line, waiting for the mail, or going to an ATM. Go on vacation or out of town without worrying…you can be sure that your paycheck will be safely credited to your account without delay.

It’s easy to set up Direct Deposit. Just select the appropriate form* listed below, then complete and return as directed.

Signing up for direct deposit also helps you qualify for Member Benefits, which gives you even MORE discounts and perks! If your employer offers Automated Clearing House (ACH) and you want to take advantage of direct deposit, contact your payroll department to inquire.
