Direct Deposit

The Housing Authority of Snohomish County is pleased to announce this new service of benefit to Section 8 landlords.

The Housing Authority will deposit your Housing Assistance payments directly into your checking or savings account. To begin this direct deposit service, simply fill out the authorization form and return it to the Housing Authority.

Landlords will continue to receive a check stub itemizing the amount deposited and for which tenants payments were made. The authorization is only valid with your signature. If a second signature is required to withdraw funds from your account, that signature is also required on the authorization form. The Housing Authority will test the data received from you before transmitting funds electronically. Funds will be deposited by the 3rd business day of each month, pending verification of funding from HUD. Your Direct Deposit will be activated once you receive the Itemized Check Stub. No more lost checks or running to the bank.

We hope you will take advantage of this new service. For questions please call (425) 290-8499 and ask for Lauri Roberts at ext 523.
