Payroll Allotment


Payroll allotment is a specific amount automatically deducted from your paycheck and electronically deposited to your FedChoice savings or checking account. Allotments are an excellent way to “pay yourself first” and build a savings account because the funds are deducted before you receive your paycheck.

To begin or change an allotment, many federal employees may utilize Employee Express, available online at Please note your agency must subscribe to Employee Express for you to use this service.

You will need the FedChoice ABA routing number (254074785) and your FedChoice account number.

Non-federal employees should contact their Human Resources or Payroll Department for information about the availability of payroll allotments.
