Early access to direct deposit funds is a free, automatic feature and depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date. Standard fraud prevention restrictions apply. If your deposit doesn't arrive early, expect it to arrive on your scheduled payday.
