CRA Direct Deposit & More

CRA Direct Deposit Through gfcu Online Banking

  • You can now sign up for CRA direct deposit or change your account information via gfcu online banking.
  • If you aren’t already registered for the CRA’s digital services, signing up for direct deposit or changing your account information through us is easy and secure!
  • Canadian taxpayers are eligible for the direct deposit enrolment service. If an individual has never filed a tax return with the CRA, they are not eligible to sign up for the CRA direct deposit service through their financial institution.
  • With direct deposit, you receive your tax refunds and benefit payments faster and securely, directly into your account.
  • If you file online and have direct deposit, you should receive your refund in as little as eight business days. Paper returns could take up to eight weeks.

Fraud Prevention

  • You can verify that a payment has been received by checking your banking statement on the account you used to sign up for direct deposit. Your payment amount will be deposited directly into the account.
  • You can also confirm that the payment was sent by the CRA by logging into CRA’s My Account.
  • Neither gfcu nor the CRA will ever send you an email, text or Interac e-transfer to a link asking for your personal information to receive your benefit payment or refund. These are scams and taxpayers should never respond to these fraudulent communications or click on any of the links provided.
  • Direct deposit helps reduce the risk of mail fraud and delays caused by a postal disruption.
