Can my direct deposit go into my Savings Account?

Your direct deposit can only go into your Chime Checking Account. However, there are a few ways that you can easily transfer money from your Checking Account into your Savings. The two main ways are:

      • Transferring funds directly into your Savings from your Checking Account
      • Automatically transferring 10% of every direct deposit over $500 or more when you activate Save When I Get Paid.
