Account Transfers (ACH/Auto)
First Watch can transfer funds automatically on a specified day. Transfers occur from one account to another within the credit union. You can have money placed into your savings account, children’s accounts and others. You can also transfer funds to your First Watch loan accounts. Automatic transfers are convenient and simple to set up.
Early Direct Deposit
Get paid up to two days* early with direct deposits. First Watch advances access to direct deposit payments when they are posted to a member's account, up to two days earlier than most banks. In most cases, payers post their payment files in advance of the payment date. When this happens, First Watch will go ahead and advance the payment amount to the member's account - resulting in members getting access to their payment up to two days before the actual payment date.
*Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day they payment file is received. First Watch observes all federal and bank holidays. On these days, banks are unable to process deposits, which may delay the arrival of a direct deposit until the next day.
