CRA Direct Deposit

Sunrise Credit Union has implemented the CRA Direct Deposit Form enrollment service for our members as of April 9, 2020. This service will be available to our current members on the MemberDirect platform.

Enrolment will be located under “Account Services >Set up CRA Direct Deposit” once a member has logged into MemberDirect.

The CRA asked Canadian financial institutions to help individuals sign up for direct deposit to receive COVID-19 relief. This would create a convenient and secure way for individuals to receive relief payments. The official name of the initiative is Direct Deposit via Financial Institutions (DDFI).

This Direct Deposit via Financial Institutions (DDFI) process will help distribute CERB funds to Canadians as quickly as possible and avoid a large-scale issuance of cheques. Individuals who have existing CRA direct deposit service may not need to re-enroll. Taxpayers who are not currently enrolled with CRA for direct deposit will need to do so.
