  • Direct Deposit

    Seattle Credit Union does support direct deposits from an employer or other similar entity. Generally, you can provide your account number and Seattle Credit Union routing number to your employer to begin your direct deposits. Seattle Credit Union’s routing number is 325081500. Most employers take about two payroll cycles for them to switch you from a paper check to direct deposit. Certain employers will request documentation, usually a voided check, showing that you own an account that can receive direct deposits. If you do not have any Seattle Credit Union checks available, we are happy to provide a direct deposit letter on our letterhead that will serve the same purpose.

    If you need your account number, you may locate it on your monthly or quarterly statement from Seattle Credit Union. Please note, that your member number cannot be used for direct deposits, it must be your account number. If you have any further questions please feel free to call our contact center at 206.398.5500, available Monday-Friday 8am-6pm and Saturday 10am-2pm.

    Get the peace of mind of knowing your check and electronic transactions are covered with Seattle Credit Union's Account Link and Overdraft Services.

    Account Link can automatically transfer funds from your Seattle Credit Union savings or Money Market account into your checking account to cover a transaction saving you from the headache of a returned check or electronic transaction.

    Overdraft Services protect you if you accidentally overdraw your checking account. When you opt in to SafetyNet, instead of rejecting the transaction, Seattle Credit Union may draw your account negative to make sure your transaction isn't returned. You can also opt-in to have SafetyNet and One-Time Debit Card Transactions cover your everyday debit card and ATM transactions.

    To set up either or both overdraft services, speak with a member representative or call our contact center at 206.398.5500.

    Debit and credit cards make it quick and convenient to make purchases online, at the corner store, coffee shop, or movie theater. To make your shopping safer, we offer CardValet®.

    CardValet is an app-based service that allows you to manage your Seattle Credit Union debit and credit card from your mobile device with just a few swipes. It allows you to:

    • Turn your card on and off, so that it's there when you need it but not if someone else tries to use it.
    • Set geographic restrictions on where your card can be used, including whether it can be used online or just in-store. Choose up to three regions based on where you do most of your shopping.
    • Restrict or allow transactions based on specific merchant types, like gas stations, restaurants, or travel services.
    • Establish transaction limits so you or another authorized card user can't spend more than you can afford.
    • Schedule alerts for certain locations, amounts, or merchant types, so you know if your card is being used in ways you haven't authorized.
    • View the transaction history associated with all of your registered cards.
    • Add notes and tags to transactions for easy viewing.

  • Loan Protection

    A rate, term, and payment aren’t the only things you can get with your loans. We also have great add-on products that help you protect your vehicle, your budget, and your credit.

    GAP Advantage: If your car is totaled in an accident, your insurance may not cover the entire balance of your loan, especially if your car is brand new. To make up the difference, we offer GAP Advantage coverage, which can cover whatever is left after your insurance company cuts their check.

    Mechanical Breakdown Insurance (MBP): MBP, also called Extended Warranty, can enhance and even replace the original manufacturer’s warranty and can cover breakdowns and repairs, so you don’t have to stretch your budget when your car is in the shop.

    Debt Protection: If you get hurt or get sick and can’t work, the last thing you may think about is your car payment. Debt Protection makes sure you don’t have to worry about it. When you are laid up for an extended period of time, Debt Protection can cover your payment until you are back up and around and able to return to work. Some plans can even cover periods of involuntary unemployment.

New Features Put Your Finances At Your Fingertips

Streamlined Viewing Of All Your Accounts

Intuitive functionality makes it easy to view and manage your accounts, card controls and in-app alerts. You can check your balance, pay bills, transfer funds between SCU accounts and more.

Zelle Lets You Send/receive Money To Friends And Family In Minutes

Zelle is a quick, safe, easy way to transfer funds person-to-person. Instead of bringing a paycheck into the branch and separating out payments, now you can do it in just a few clicks without having to set up autopay.

If you are NEW to Zelle it's easy to set up. We'll provide a short SCU HOW2 video to walk you through the steps.

If you currently use Zelle with another financial institution, you have a choice to keep it there or move it to SCU – but Zelle can only be tied to one financial institution at a time. We recommend Zelle be tied to your primary account(s) used to transfer funds to friends and family (ie: primary checking or savings)

Activate A Travel Notice Or Skip-a-pay With One Click

You can set a Travel Notice so SCU is not surprised to see credit or debit card purchases from an unusual location. Plus, our anytime Skip-A-Pay program allows you to skip up to two monthly payments in a 12-month period on certain SCU loans. Both of these can be done with a simple click in Online Banking or the SCU app. No need to call or visit a branch.

Safety & Security

There is no higher priority than the safety and security of our members, associates, and community. If you have questions or concerns, we're here for you at 206.398.5500 or send us a secure message through Online Banking.


We have implemented enhanced cleaning in common areas, hand sanitizer, a safe social distance between members and associates, and a maximum capacity of people inside our branches to minimize the risk of person-to-person transmission of the virus. We are monitoring the latest information provided by the CDC, as well as local health officials, and will update our procedures as needed based on their recommendations and guidelines.

Your Funds Are Safe And Federally Insured

We want to assure you that in times of economic challenge, your Seattle Credit Union deposits are safe. We are well-capitalized and strong. Your funds are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) to at least $250,000 and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.

Be Aware Of Covid-19 Scams

Unfortunately, scammers are taking advantage of the fears surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to share a few tips for protecting your private information:

  • If you are contacted and asked for online banking credentials, credit card numbers, or other Personal Identification Information (PII), be vigilant.
  • Be suspicious about any offer via email or telephone that appears too good to be true. Never provide PII on an unsolicited phone call or click any links on an unsolicited email. Always determine if the person or business you are interacting with is legitimate. If in doubt, go directly to the company's website or call a reputable number to verify any information.
  • Be careful about offers for work from home schemes, job opportunities, or any emails or texts that are about checks from the government. Government agencies do not communicate through social media outlets and will never ask you to pay a fee for a government grant.
  • Be aware of stimulus check scams: Some scammers may start using official-looking fake checks to steal money and confuse people into turning over personal information.
  • Coronavirus scams: What the FTC is Doing: The FTC has compiled some useful tips for keeping scammers at bay.
