How to credit your salary or income to your bank savings account? You can credit your salary to your Standard Chartered savings account via cheque, cash deposit at ATMs or in Standard Chartered branches, funds and bank transfers, and GIRO. If your savings account has an interest rate programme or is linked to a debit or credit card cashback programme, then you will need to credit your salary via GIRO with the codes “SAL” or “PAY” – something you can inform your HR (Human Resources) department to assist you with.
