Direct deposit means you can skip depositing a physical check. A direct deposit allows a company or organization (i.e. your employer) to electronically transfer funds from their bank account into your bank account. This is done through a national, third-party network called, the Automated Clearing House (ACH).
When will I receive my direct deposit?
Your pay file is sent to us from your employer’s bank and as a courtesy, USAA makes your deposit available one business day before the actual pay date (as long as your employer provides us notification two business days in advance*).
When paydays fall on holidays or weekends, the date your pay arrives may change based on the date your employer sent USAA your direct deposit.
Set up a notification to make sure you get an alert each time your direct deposit arrives. You can receive an email or text to let you know as soon as it arrives.
