Direct Deposits to Your CAP COM Account

Get Your Money Faster with Direct Deposit

When you expect money to arrive, it can be frustrating to wait for a check to come in the mail. Whether it’s a tax refund, payment for work you’ve done, or a stimulus relief check from the federal government – sooner is always better than later!

Speed up the process by arranging direct deposits into your CAP COM account. Here are the benefits of direct deposit and the information you’ll need to provide to whoever is paying you.

About Direct Deposit

Direct deposit enables you to receive money directly in your CAP COM account so you can eliminate the delays, clutter, and hassles of paper checks. Below are some ways you can benefit from direct deposit – and keep reading for the information you’ll need to set it up.

Getting Paid. If your employer offers payroll deposit, you can arrange for it to be automatically deposited into your account at CAP COM. Ask your employer how to sign up for payroll deposit and specify which CAP COM accounts you want your payroll deposited into (more on that below).

Your Tax Refund. When you submit your tax return to the IRS, you can have your refund deposited into your CAP COM account. Include the account information requested, so the IRS can automatically make the deposit.

Your Stimulus Payment. If you’re eligible for a pandemic relief payment, the information you provided to the IRS when filing your tax return enables the federal government to deposit funds directly into your CAP COM account.

Account Information You’ll Need

You can designate any CAP COM account for your direct deposit – checking, savings, even iSave certificates because they allow deposits. When you set up direct deposit, you can expect to be asked for two pieces of information.

1) CAP COM’s Routing Number
CAP COM’s 9-digit routing number is 221373273. This number identifies the financial institution to the payer, so the funds can be electronically transmitted. 

Where to find it? CAP COM’s routing number is:

  • Listed at the bottom of www.capcomfcu.org
  • Inside the left set of brackets at the bottom of your checks
  • Under Account Details in your online account

2) Your Account Number
Your 13-digit account number (known as MICR*) specifies the destination for your deposit once it arrives at CAP COM.

Where to find it in the mobile app?
Locating your account number in your mobile account is easy. Launch your CAP COM app and:

1) Choose the account you want to use for your direct deposits from the list of accounts.

2) Tap Details and note the MICR – this is your 13-digit account number.
