What is Early Pay Day?

Early Pay Day gives you access to your eligible direct deposits up to two days early.

Once we receive information about your incoming direct deposit from your payor, we may make the funds available for your use up to two days earlier than your scheduled pay date.

How to get paid early with Direct Deposit

Three easy steps

Step 1.
Use our pre-filled form

Use our Wells Fargo Mobile® app or sign on to create your customized Direct Deposit guide.

  • Select the account you'd like your deposits to go to, and we'll pre-fill the form with your routing number, account number, and account type.

You can also download a blank Direct Deposit/Automatic Payments Set-Up Guide (PDF) and fill in the information yourself.

Step 2.
Provide the information on the completed form to the company or agency that pays you

Your payor may ask you to complete their own form in order to process your request.

Step 3.
Monitor your account

It may be one or two pay or benefit periods before Direct Deposit goes into effect.

Signing up for automatic alerts will notify you when a direct deposit is available in your account. Choose how you want to receive alerts — email, text message, or push notification to your phone. You can change your preferences anytime.

Early Pay Day FAQs

How does Early Pay Day work?

How early will my Direct Deposit be available to me?

It depends. The day and time we make funds available will depend on when we receive information about your deposit from your employer or other payor, which can vary from deposit to deposit.

Will funds from my direct deposit always arrive early?

No. Early availability is not guaranteed, and may vary from deposit to deposit – including those from the same payor.

Whether we are able to provide early availability depends on when we receive information from your payor that the funds are on the way, any limitations we set on the amount of early availability, and standard fraud prevention screening.
