How do I set up direct deposit into Checking through my paycheck?

You’ll need to set up direct deposit through whatever process your employer has in place. Your HR department will typically give you a form, and you’ll share your new account and routing numbers. Your employer might even provide the option to request the change online through a portal rather than via a paper form.

We also have our own direct deposit form you can use, if your employer will accept it. This form includes a voided check and can be generated within your Betterment account:

Via mobile app: Log in and select Checking > Deposit > Set up direct deposit > download your pre-filled form > Download form.

Via web browser: Log in and select Checking > Set up direct deposit (located within the right-hand Account details section) > Download your prefilled form > Download form.

Make sure to find out when your employer expects the change to take place after you provide them with your Checking account information.
