Debit Cards:

Payroll Debit Cards are an alternative to direct deposit or paper checks. Employees can use the Payroll Debit Card as they would a traditional debit card.

Payroll Direct Deposit:

Payroll Direct Deposit has become increasingly popular because it does away with unnecessary paper. Even small employers enjoy the ease of payroll direct deposit versus traditional paper check. Payroll Direct Deposit is an electronic payment from one bank account to another. For example, instead of an employer writing out a traditional paper payroll check, our Payroll Direct Deposit option allows payroll funds to move from an employer's bank account to an employee's bank account. The funds seamlessly move from one checking account to another. With the use of our secure and confidential Payroll Direct Deposit option, employers will no longer be required to purchase costly paper checks in order to run payroll.

Reasons our clients and employees prefer the Payroll Direct Deposit option:

  • Completely Automated - No action is required from the employer or the employee. It's effortless.
  • No mail or paper necessary - No need print checks or pay to mail them.
  • Electronic records - Everyone has a record of the activity.
  • Security - No one can steal, alter or attempt to cash it.
  • Cost - Payroll Direct Deposit is free to our clients.
  • Faster pay - funds are available for spending immediately by eliminating the need to deposit the check and wait for it to clear.
