Direct Deposit – Amount Account(s)

Directive Statement

This directive establishes the proper methods of adding direct deposit account(s) that can have a stated amount (called an “amount account”).  You can add two Amount Accounts in addition to your Balance Account.  Your monies will go into your amount account first, with any remainder going into your Balance Account.

Travel reimbursements will be deposited into your first amount account (if you have more than one).

Please note, if the bank rejects the ACH attempt to an Amount Account, Payroll Services will delete the Amount Account and send remaining payment to the balance account within a week.  You may add the account back with the correct banking information.

Definitions

Amount Account

Additional bank account(s) to have specific amount deposited.  Amount must be entered in the system. Amount accounts may be deleted.  If Amount accounts are created, these amounts are sequentially taken out in order of priority (1, then 2, then the remainder (if any) of your deposit goes into your Balance account).

Balance Account

This is your primary account where your funds are deposited.  There must always be a Balance account and although it can be changed, it can never be deleted. [Back to Top]
