There are lots of ways to get money into your GreenState account, and the best one depends a lot on the situation. Here's a quick overview of the options:

Transfers from another bank account

You can link another bank account and set up transfers, fee-free. Transfers into GreenState take 2-4 business days; transfers out of GreenState take just 1-2 business days. If you choose to initiate a transfer through another bank, they may charge a small fee and the timeline varies: it's typically 2-5 business days.

Depositing in a branch

You can bring cash, checks, and bonds into any GreenState location to deposit into your GreenState account. Branch locations also have dropboxes for after hours deposits, these dropbox deposits will be processed next business day. 

Direct deposit

Once your employer sets up direct deposit, your paycheck will arrive early in the morning on payday (or the next business day, if payday falls over the weekend or on a holiday). Direct deposit is a great way to get funds into your account on autopilot.

Checks

Most checks and money orders can be deposited with Photo Check Deposit‍. Larger checks and a few other types of checks must be mailed in.

Wire transfers

GreenState is able to receive wire transfers into your account. We charge a fee of $5.00 to receive a wire, and the bank that sends the wire may also charge a fee. Wire transfers are a quick, secure way to send funds. They're great for moving large sums into GreenState.

Third Party Services

You can also use many payment and transfer services (such as PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, or Google Wallet) with GreenState; some of these services can be used to get money into your GreenState account.
