All new direct deposits are subject to verification, which usually takes two full pay periods. You will receive paper pay checks until your new direct deposit account(s) become active. Always verify the available balance in your bank account before authorizing any payments or withdrawals.

Your Primary Account may become active before your Secondary Accounts. If so, the amounts specified for your partial deposits will be included in the deposit to your Primary Account until the Secondary Accounts become active.

If you receive direct deposit at a U.S. bank and then have the entire amount forwarded to a bank in another country, please contact the Payroll Department at or 215.895.2885. There are special formatting requirements for these transactions that the University needs to follow. It will not impact your payroll.
