Direct deposit forms are available from the websites of most banks, including Wells Fargo, Chase and Bank of America. In addition, employees can typically obtain direct deposit forms through their employers' human resources departments, notes About.com. Human resources can also provide information on a person's eligibility for direct deposit.
Direct deposit forms usually require several pieces of information, including a name, address, account number and routing number, explains Chase. Sometimes, employers or payers require voided checks in addition to direct deposit forms. After the employer or payer receives the form, it may take several weeks before direct deposits occur, according to Wells Fargo. Besides employers, other uses for direct deposit payments include Social Security funds, pensions, retirement plans, VA benefits and investments.
