& Payroll Deduction
The easiest, most secure way to receive payroll and benefit checks.
Direct deposit is the easiest, most secure way to receive your
payroll, retirement, pension and other benefit checks. You won't
have to wait in line to cash your check, and you'll never have to
worry about checks being lost or delayed in the mail, because your
funds are electronically deposited in your Columbus Metro account
on the payment date.
To start direct deposit, simply contact your human resources or
payroll office and ask to set up direct deposit. If you receive
benefits from any of the following agencies, you can call the numbers
listed below and arrange for direct deposit by telephone:

check plus the amount of your most recent payment to enroll online.

Build your savings and make loan payments quickly
When you use payroll deduction, a designated portion of your pay
-- rather than the entire amount -- is automatically deposited to
your account at Columbus Metro. You can use payroll deduction to
make deposits to your savings, Christmas or Vacation Club, IRA and
more, plus make your loan payments. With payroll deduction, you
won't have to make a trip to our office or mail in a check to make
a deposit or loan payment, because it's done automatically.
Talk to your human resources or payroll department about setting
up payroll deduction. Once you've done so, call us at 614.239.0210
or 800.986.3876 and we'll help you distribute the funds among your
savings and loans according to your wishes.
