Direct Deposits and Automatic Withdrawals
Automatic payment and withdrawal options on SLFCU accounts can include direct deposit of payroll funds or social security, tax refunds, utility bill payments, membership dues, and more. It’s important that the account numbers you use for these services are in a specific format, so funds are deposited to or withdrawn from the correct account. To set up a direct deposit or an automatic withdrawal from any of your SLFCU accounts, you will need the following information:
Sandia Laboratory Federal Credit Union's routing number: 307083911
To make a deposit or withdrawal with a savings account: If you'd like to make a deposit or withdrawal from your savings account, use the account number and product ID for that account. For example, if your savings account number is 1234567, and you would like your deposit to go to your 0002 savings account, enter your account number as 12345670002.
To make a deposit or withdrawal with a checking account: In online banking, select the Accounts widget and click on the account for which you'd like to set up the automatic withdrawal or direct deposit. Then select the Account Details tab and look for the "Auto WD & Direct Deposit #." You may also obtain this information by calling us or stopping by any branch.
How to find the correct account number in your checks: Use the number printed on the bottom of your checks as shown in the image below. The automatic withdrawal and direct deposit account number is in the red box on the right side of the check. The last number string – 01026 in the image below– is the number of that individual paper check and should not be used. SLFCU's routing number is in the red box on the left side of the check.
To select between a savings or checking account: When setting up a deposit or withdrawal with a company or agency, they will ask you to indicate if the account is savings or checking. Indicate the account type you would like the deposit or withdrawal to/from.
For tax refunds:
- When setting up a direct deposit for your tax return, specify if the account is savings or checking.
- All named recipients on the refund check must be owners or joint owners of the specified SLFCU account. A person who is not a joint owner on the account cannot deposit their refund into your SLFCU account.
