Early Pay is a free service from Discover that gives you access to funds from qualifying Automated Clearing House (ACH) direct deposits up to two days early. Keep in mind that early access depends on when the payment initiator (or “Payor”), typically a business or government entity, sends us information that your deposit is on the way.
