What You’ll Need

To set up direct deposit, you’ll need to provide the depositor with State Employees’ Credit Union’s ABA Routing Transit Number and your account number.

You can locate your account number on the Summary of Accounts page on your monthly statement or your Account Summary in Member Access.

Setting Up Direct Deposit

State or local government employees should complete the Direct Deposit Authorization Form and contact their employer's payroll or human resources department to initiate direct deposit.
Retirees can initiate direct deposit online by visiting the North Carolina Department of State Treasurer webpage and completing the online retirement application through their automated payment system, ORBIT.

Retirees can also complete the North Carolina Department of State Treasurer Form RET-170 and mail it to:

Department of State Treasurer
Retirement System Division
3200 Atlantic Avenue, Raleigh, NC 27604
Employees of private companies should complete the Direct Deposit Authorization Form and contact their employer’s payroll or human resources department to initiate direct deposit.
Federal government employees (including military) should complete the Direct Deposit Authorization Form and contact their employer’s payroll or human resources department to initiate or make changes to direct deposit.

Employees can also download and complete sections 1 and 2 of US Treasury Form 1199-A. Section 3 must be completed at a local Credit Union branch before submitting the form to their employer's payroll office.
Members who receive federal benefit payments generally must set up an electronic payment option when they apply to receive their payments.

If you are already receiving benefit payments and want to make changes to your existing direct deposit, visit the US Treasury Department’s GoDirect webpage for more information and links to the applicable paying agency's website and/or phone number.
