Setting up Direct Deposit
To sign up for Direct Deposit of your next paycheck, retirement check, government check, or other recurring deposit to your Wescom account, follow these easy steps:
- Download and print our Direct Deposit Authorization Form
- On the form, provide:
- Your name.
- Your Social Security Number.
- The number of the Wescom account into which you want your check electronically deposited.
If you want your entire check deposited into your primary checking account, indicate Checking on the form and provide your account information.
Be sure to include your primary six-digit account number, your checking ID number, AND the special clearing number (see the sample check on the right). Alternately, you can attach one of your voided checks.
If you want your entire check deposited into your savings account, indicate Savings on the form and provide your primary Wescom account number and your individual savings ID number. If your primary account number has less than six digits, be sure to place leading zeroes (0) to make six digits.
For example, if your account number is 678, you would enter 000678.
If you want your deposit split between two or more Wescom accounts, or if you want a portion of your check sent to another financial institution, call us at 1-888-4WESCOM (1-888-493-7266) after your first Direct Deposit is made. We'll set up the fund transfers according to your wishes.
