Dreyfus Payroll Savings Form Instructions

Thank you for your interest in the Dreyfus Payroll Savings Plan. We are confident you will find this a very convenient and efficient way to help you toward achieving your financial goals.1

The Dreyfus Payroll Savings Plan enables you to have a portion or all of your paycheck deposited directly into your Dreyfus mutual fund account, if your employer offers direct deposit of paychecks. With this plan, there are no checks to write, no stamps to affix, no trips to the post office. Furthermore, because the transfer is made electronically from your employer's payroll account to Dreyfus, your money goes to work for you as soon as we receive it.

The authorization form is all you need to add the Dreyfus Payroll Savings Plan to your existing eligible Dreyfus account. Simply:

  • Indicate the account into which you wish your investments to go;
  • Tell us the amount you want to invest each pay period (you may choose any amount between $100 and your total net pay);
  • Provide us with some information about your employer;
  • Attach a voided check or transaction confirmation from your Dreyfus account;
  • Sign the Authorization Form and give it to your payroll department.

Your employer will be responsible for arranging all transactions and may be able to arrange a different investment schedule (such as deductions from every other paycheck). Your pay stubs will report your investment and you will receive a transaction confirmation from Dreyfus for each investment.

You work hard for your paycheck. Why not make it work for you? Start today with the Dreyfus Payroll Savings Plan.
