Direct deposit services

You can ensure you receive your WSIB benefit payments as quickly and efficiently by using the WSIB’s direct deposit services.

Direct deposit is the fastest, safest and easiest way to receive your benefit payments.

It is also:

  • reliable – no risk of lost, forgotten or stolen cheques or postal delays
  • completely confidential
  • convenient – no need to spend valuable time depositing benefit cheques at your financial institution
  • accessible – your money is available as soon as it's deposited — no more cheque holds
  • great for the environment – saves paper

If you receive on-going benefit payments and have a Canadian bank account you can request direct deposit for your benefit payments. 

How to sign up for direct deposit
