Why did Seattle Bank adopt Early Pay?

As a digitally driven boutique bank, Seattle Bank is dedicated to adopting the tools and technologies that give you more insight and financial control over your banking experience.

How can I set up Early Pay direct deposit?

Early Pay is an added benefit for Seattle Bank clients – no set up is required! When you open a Seattle Bank checking account and set up direct deposit, Early Pay direct deposit is an automatic feature. For new and existing checking accounts, qualified deposits will post to your account up to two (2) days early*.

Will my direct deposits always arrive two days early?

It depends. You might receive your direct deposit early or on your regularly scheduled payday. Early Pay direct deposit availability is subject to various factors including:

  • The type of payment received
  • The timing of the payment file submission
  • Payroll system issues from your payor

Timing of direct deposits may vary from pay period to pay period. Seattle Bank is not responsible for NSF fees or penalties resulting from transactions in advance of an anticipated early ACH credit posting.

What types of deposits will I be able to receive early?

Deposits that are available to be accessed early include payroll, retirement, social security, and re-occurring deposits.

Do holidays affect my direct deposit?

Holidays may affect the timing and availability of deposits. Check with your employer or government agency on their deposit policy.
