How do I set up Direct Deposit?

Don't wait in line to deposit your paycheck. Direct deposit is the safe, convenient way to deposit your check on payday and is available from most employers.

To participate in Direct Deposit, your employer will need Family Security's Transit Routing number, 262284279, and your account number. Both sequences of numbers are located at the bottom of your personal checks. The first sequence of numbers on the bottom of the check is the Transit Routing number and the second sequence of numbers is the account number (See Diagram Below). Most employers require a copy of a voided personal check to begin the process.
