Question about direct deposit....

Okay DH and I have Direct Deposit at our Bank. We get paid every two weeks. We ALWAYS get paid one day before everyone else does because of Direct Deposite. I was wondering if since we would be getting our Money on Wednesday this week, but its a holiday will it get put in our bank on thursday like everyone else or tuesday?

  • Under Illinois employment law, you should be paid the day before.

  • I agree it should be the day before.
    BUT check your account- if it says pending on the day you get it, that means the transaction hasn't actually gone through. Sometimes I think the bank does that just to see if they can make you bounce a check, so be careful!

  • You might also see your on line banking to see is pay is pending the day before.
