1 2.53% (APY) paid on balances between one penny and $15,000, and 0.05% APY paid on all amounts above $15,000 each qualification period the minimum requirements are met. For minimum requirements to be met, actions must be performed and must clear/post to the account during the qualification period. If you do not meet the requirements per qualification period, your account will still function as a free checking account and earn the base rate of 0.05% APY; however, it will not receive ATM refunds for that time period. CUXcel Qualification Cycles will be calculated on a calendar month basis rather than the current qualification cycle. For example, January’s qualification cycle will now be January 1st through January 31st. Additionally, members will no longer receive a CUXcel notification email since the CUXcel Qualifiers can be reviewed in real time on BOB (Belvoir Online Banking). Bills paid electronically through Belvoir Federal’s Bill Pay will count towards the 15 Debit Card purchases that have cleared/posted within a given period. All other qualification periods follow this same pattern of dates. Rates and tiers as of July 1, 2013, and subject to change without notice. No Minimum Balance Required. Available to Personal Accounts only. Free Online Bill Pay. No monthly service charge. This credit union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.

Early Direct Deposit
Belvoir Federal offers our members the benefit of getting their pay early with direct deposit! Many companies and government agencies send funds electronically, which is seen as a direct deposit, before the “official” payday. If you have a direct deposit into a Belvoir Federal account and we receive your pay early, we will make it available to you!
How Do I Get Early Direct Deposit?
If your pay is already directly deposited to an existing Belvoir Federal account, you do not have to do anything. The early direct deposit will occur automatically. If your pay is not already directly deposited to a Belvoir Federal account, you will need to update how your pay comes into your account if you wish to receive your direct deposit early.
- If you are in the Armed Forces or a Federal employee, go to mypay.dfas.mil or www.go.direct.gov and update where your pay is directly deposited.
- With all other direct deposit payrolls, you can contact your payroll department to sign up for direct deposit to your Belvoir Federal account.
To begin Direct Deposit into your Belvoir Federal account, provide your payroll department or the originator of the deposit with the below information or complete this Direct Deposit Form.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Early Direct Deposit
Click on the below question to learn the answer.
What is early direct deposit?
Many companies and government agencies send your pay electronically before your “official” payday. Early direct deposit offers credit of your direct deposit to your Belvoir Federal account up to one business day early based upon when we receive your payroll from your employer.

What if I have automatic transfers/payments tied to my direct deposit?
If you have automatic transfers/payments that occur when your direct deposit is posted, they will still occur at the time of your deposit.
Is there ever a time when I will not receive my deposit early?
- It is our practice to post your direct deposit as soon as it is received by Belvoir Federal, which means you may receive your paycheck up to one business day early. In instances where we do not receive the information ahead of time, Belvoir Federal is not able to post your deposit early. Instead, your direct deposit will be posted on your normal payday or as soon as we receive the funds.
- If your direct deposit is not posted early, it could be due to one of the following reasons: (1) Your employer does not submit your payroll into the ACH system in time to post it early. This sometimes happens when a holiday falls on a weekday. (2) The ACH system is not functioning properly, resulting in a delay. In our experience, this is a rare occurrence.
- We recommend that you do not write checks or authorize any other withdrawals against your directly deposited funds until you verify that they have been posted to your account. By making sure to double check your directly deposited funds, you may avoid overdraft charges in the case that funds had not yet been deposited.
Belvoir Federal has no control over when direct deposit funds are received and cannot guarantee early delivery or payment.
