Get Your Funds Faster!


When you set-up Direct Deposit* through an employer, social security benefits or retirement fund with your HFCU account, you could receive your funds generally several days prior to your actual paycheck date. You get your money faster with HFCU, a member benefit. As soon as we receive your Direct Deposit*, we post your funds to your account. No more waiting in lines or worrying that your check may be late or lost in the mail.

All you need to get started is the Houston Federal Credit Union routing number: 313183368, and your 14-digit checking account number or 12-digit savings account number. As soon as your paycheck, federal benefits, or retirement benefits are received by HFCU, we will make your money available. It’s that easy!

You can find your account information in your eTeller (online banking) profile by navigating to the Other Services tab and clicking on ACH info (Account number information is not available in the mobile app at this time).
