Direct Deposit Settings

If your company uses Direct Deposit (so your paycheck deposits directly into your bank account, you may be able to view, edit, and add your settings. You can see all these settings on one screen.

We recommend "paperless paydays" as a best practice: to achieve paperless paydays, you should encourage your employees to opt for Direct Deposit. This provides the following advantages over printed, mailed checks:


To work with your direct deposit settings

1.  Search for Update My Direct Deposit (or navigate to My Info>My HR>HR Actions) and select the Update My Direct Deposit HR action.

HR Actions provide more of a paper trail and a submittal and approval process. If you are unsure which method to use, please ask your Manager.

Alternatively, you can work with your existing direct deposit settings from Direct Deposit under My Info>My Pay. This lists any direct deposits you already have set up. Click the edit  icon next to the setting you want to change, or click +Add in the upper right corner of the active account area to create a new one.

To edit a direct deposit you already set up

You may see an option to add a Direct Deposit method called Reserve Live Check, which is sometimes used in conjunction with Direct Deposit. Be sure to check with your HR department before setting this type of payment up to make sure they can support it.
Additionally, if you need to stop using an existing direct deposit method but want to use again in the future, simply edit it and change the Active setting to Inactive (if enabled).

Adding a new direct deposit

2.  On the Add New Direct Deposit screen, enter your direct deposit information.

Calculation MethodClosed

This is how you can set a percentage of your paycheck to be deposited. Entire/Remainder, Flat $ Amount and % of Net Pay are the most commonly used. If you have only one Direct Deposit bank account, choose Entire/Remainder. If you have multiple direct deposit accounts, they will trigger in the order they are listed (which you can change). Keep in mind that processing these methods in different orders may calculate different amounts to the separate accounts. All Calculation methods are explained below, although some may not be available for you:

  • Entire/Remainder: deposit all or the remaining portion of a check. You can have only one active direct deposit that uses this Calc Method.

  • Flat $ Amount (Example $100, $200, etc.)

  • % of Gross Earnings: deposit the percentage you choose based on your gross earnings. (Example: if your gross is $2000 and your net pay is $1500 and you elect 50% of gross, $1000 would be deposited in your specified account. $500 would remain to be deposited or go to live check).

  • % of Net Pay: deposit the percentage you choose based on your net pay.

  • % of Remaining Net: deposit a percentage you choose of the remaining pay after other deposits. (Example: after applying the % of Gross Earnings above, $500 remains and you can deposit X percentage of that $500 into another account.

3.  Once you have edited or added a direct deposit, click SAVE; if using the HR Action, then click SUBMIT. The setting will be listed with your Direct Deposits and in effect for the dates you specify.

If this is the first time you have set up direct deposit, it may take several days for the system to confirm that it can deposit successfully to your account. This is known as prenote processing and varies by state.
