Get paid faster when you set up direct deposit with Chase. Here's how to get started below, plus how long it takes to get your money.

Direct deposit is a popular, convenient and secure way to send or receive payments.

If you're not already enjoying direct deposits with Chase, stick around. Below, find out how to set it up and how long it will take to clear funds.

What is Direct Deposit?

Direct deposit lets you automatically deposit paychecks and other income into your savings or checking account. It's a convenient way to send or receive money without paper checks.

You can set up direct deposits for:

  • Payroll
  • Social security and other supplemental benefits
  • Tax refunds or government stimulus payments
  • Child support and maintenance
  • Pay bills

Direct deposits are quick, safe and pretty hands-off. When someone sends you money, you don't need to accept the payment into your account. If you're paying with direct deposit, your checking balance will decrease once the payments leave your bank account.
