Direct Deposit

A State Bank Group Banking Service Direct Deposit is a safe and easy way to have funds deposited directly into your Harvard Savings Bank accounts. Here are a few reasons to take advantage of this service:

  • Quick - your money is electronically transferred into your account and available to use instantly once the transfer is complete. With direct deposit your money is ready to use on the day of transfer.
  • Reliable - it puts money in your account on time, every time. There's no check-hold delay, nothing to get lost.
  • Convenient - there's no need to arrange for a special deposit or trip to the bank-a real convenience when you are away from home on vacation or business.
  • Secure - worries about lost, stolen or misplaced checks are a thing of the past. With the electronic trail that direct deposits leave, payments are easier to track than paper checks.

Please contact the organization that issues the check for their direct deposit form. Fill it out completely using the Harvard Savings Bank routing number (271972103) and your respective account number. If you need assistance filling out the form, please stop by any of our offices.
