Get the routing number and the account number for the person's bank account. The routing number is nine digits and identifies the bank at which the account is located. The length of the account number varies. Both of these numbers appear at the bottom of the person's checks, with the routing number first, between the symbols with three dots.
Call your bank or log on to the online account management area. If the person who you are giving the direct deposit uses the same bank, select the option to "transfer money to another customer." If the person uses a different bank, choose the option of transferring money to an account at a different bank.
Enter the routing number and account number for the checking account to which you want to directly deposit money.
Enter the amount of money you would like to deposit. Make sure you have enough money in your account for that amount to clear.
Select the option to complete the transfer.
