Your Money the Electronic Way
Direct deposit is one of the easiest and safest ways to get
your paycheck or retirement check deposited directly into your
credit union account. The money comes to Ascension Credit Union
electronically on payday, and is available to you immediately.
No longer will you have to rush to beat the crowd or worry
about our closing times.
To begin utilizing Direct Deposit you will need to provide
your employer's payroll department with the Ascension Credit
Unions routing and transit number. Employees of the Ascension
Parish School Board may complete Direct Deposit paperwork with
us or at the School Board office.

you can direct us to automatically disperse funds to different
accounts, instead of having to transfer funds to your loan

is an easy way for you to pay bills without writing and mailing
checks each month. When setting up an automatic payment from

of your checks, include:

identifies that the funds will come from Ascension Credit

To ensure the payment will be processed, the entire 14 digit
number will need to be provided.

It will depend on how you are making the payment.
