Q. What is direct deposit?
A. Direct deposit is also known as Electronic
Funds Transfer (EFT) and delivers your money into your bank,
savings and loan or credit union quickly and safely. The U.S.
Treasury sends an electronic message to your bank, savings and loan
or credit union crediting your account with the exact amount of
your deposit. You can withdraw money, put some in savings or pay
bills-the things you do with your money now. The difference is,
your check isn't printed or mailed. If you choose not
to receive Direct Deposit payments, you will continue to receive a
check. That check would be mailed on the same day that the
direct deposit would be credited to your account.
Q. What are the advantages of direct deposit?
A. Some advantages are:
• Financial Control: With direct deposit, you are in
control: 1) you may have your monies deposited to your account; 2)
you may change your financial institution at any time; and 3) you
may cancel your authorization at any time.
• Privacy: Direct deposit is one of the most
confidential methods of processing your monies and access to your
financial account information is restricted; there are privacy laws
to protect your confidentiality.
• Reliability: Funds are automatically deposited into your
selected financial account even if you are out of town, sick or
unable to get to the bank.
• Security: No worries about lost or stolen checks; funds are
automatically deposited to your account.
• Convenience: No matter where you are, your monies will be
sent to your account.
Q. Do I have to receive my benefits
A. No. If you choose not to receive Direct
Deposit payments, you will continue to receive a check. That
check would be mailed on the same day that the direct deposit would
be credited to your account.
Q. I'm interested in receiving my benefits
electronically. What should I do?
A. Here are three options:
• If you have an account, contact your bank, savings and loan
or credit union. They can answer your questions about direct
deposit. The bank will also be able to provide you with
the routing number and account number in case you are concerned
about identifying that information yourself.
• If you don't have an account, consider opening one and sign
up for direct deposit at that time. Most banks, savings and loans
and credit unions offer a variety of accounts, including accounts
designed for students, some with little or no fees. Look for one
that meets your needs.
• You can purchase a reloadable debit card at many retail
locations. Card types and charges vary so GTCC recommends
that you understand all terms before signing up for a card.
Make sure that you can get the routing number and account number
that will be needed for the direct deposit enrollment.
Please note: You may use
either a checking account or a savings account. The account must be
with a U.S. bank.

Q. When I sign up for direct deposit, how long does
it take before my money is in my account?
A. GTCC will begin transmitting student financial
aid disbursements and student refund payments during the Summer of
2012. The first distribution is anticipated to be on June 20,
2012. In order to participate in that first run, you must be

that your first disbursement will be via direct deposit.
Q. The enrollment form asks for my checking or savings
account number and my bank's routing number. How do I find
A. Checking and savings account numbers are
normally notes at the bottom of your checks as well as the 9 digit
routing number. In order to avoid confusion on properly
recording your information, you may want to contact your bank and
request assistance. Additionally, in WebAdvisor there are
examples. Please click on the link at the top of the banking
information form to see those examples.
Q. How do I know when my money is in my account so I
can pay my bills?

Q. When can I use my money?

with your money now, you can also do with direct deposit.
Q. After I sign up for direct deposit, do I have to
stay with the same bank?
A. No, you can use direct deposit at any federally
insured bank, savings and loan or credit union. You will need to

account. Your bank may provide options for you to transfer
the funds to another account. Please ask your bank for
assistance if needed.
Q. What if I decide to change banks? What do I
have to do?
A. To change your direct deposit to another
account, you must log back into WebAdvisor and change your
information. It will automatically update our
system. Changes must be made at least 2 weeks in advance
of a disbursement to be in effect for that disbursement.
Q.What if I want to stop participating? What do I have to
A. We hope you will find that this a quick and
easy method for getting funds due to you. However, should you
choose to stop participating, log back into WebAdvisor and mark the
information to be deleted. Then click submit.
Q. Are there any costs to me for participating in
A. No. The option is provided as a service
for you. Please check with your bank to see if any fees apply
from them. In many cases, direct deposit may actually reduce
fees but you should check with your bank to find the information
that would pertain to your situation.
Q. I realize electronic payments will be more
convenient for me, but what are the benefits to the college?
A. In addition to being safe and convenient for
recipients, electronic payments are more efficient and cost
effective for the college because they cost less than preparing and
mailing checks. In addition, the college doesn't have to pay to
replace checks that are lost, stolen or missing.
Q. Who do I contact if I have questions?
A. If you have questions, you may contact the
Cashier's Office or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
