Direct deposit ensures that your pension payment is deposited into your account on the first business day of the month, whereas a check mailed to your home will take several days to arrive and then clear, delaying access to your funds. Direct deposit avoids costly delays and the chance of a lost or stolen check.
For any questions about direct deposit, please contact Member Services, 312-641-4464.
