As an employee, it's easy to update your payment information on the web or mobile application. This article will guide you through updating your payment information on the web and mobile applications.

Once you have updated your direct deposit information, the changes will come into effect during the next processed payroll.


Update your payment information on the web application

  1. Log in to Fingercheck on app.fingercheck.com.

  2. Click MY ACCOUNT > Direct Deposit.

  3. To change your direct deposit, click the Edit icon (pencil) for the payment information you want to change.
    If you want to request a pay card, see How to Request a Pay Card.

  4. Make the necessary changes:

    • Nick Name: You can enter any name to identify which account is used for this direct deposit. Some examples would be Paycheck, Trip, or Auto.

    • Trans-ABA: Enter the bank routing number. The routing number is found on your checks, or you should be able to get it when you log in to your online banking.

    • Account Number: Enter the bank account number. The account number is found on your checks or when you log in to your online banking.

    • Account Type: Select if the account is a Checking or Savings.

    • Calculation Type: Select the type of calculation to use when determining how much of your paycheck to direct deposit into this account.

      • Flat ($): Select this option to specify a flat dollar amount to be directly deposited into the bank account each pay period.

        Use this to set up a direct deposit where you would like to have a portion of your paycheck deposited.

      • Percent (%): Select this option to specify a percentage of your pay to be directly deposited each pay period.

        • If you would like to have your entire paycheck deposited into one account, select this option and enter 100.00 in the Amount.

        • If you would like to have a percentage of your paycheck deposited into this account, select this option and enter the percentage of your paycheck in the amount.

        • Please note: if you have more than one direct deposit set up, you must review the sequence for each account.

      • RemainOnCheck: Select this option to specify how much of your paycheck should be issued as a live check.

        Please note: You should confirm with your employer that they will produce a live check automatically as part of their payroll process before selecting this option.

    • Amount: Enter the amount of your paycheck that you would like to have to be direct deposit.

    • Sequence: Enter the priority that this direct deposit should be used when multiple direct deposits are set up.

      • When dealing with multiple direct deposits, the sequence number dictates the priority for reviewing and processing accounts when calculating and making deposits.

      • For your primary paycheck deposit, assign a sequence number of 99 to the designated direct deposit.

    • Block On Additional Checks: Check this box if you want to exclude this account from any additional paychecks processed.

      • An instance of additional checks being processed could be when your employer issues a bonus or commission check separately from your regular paycheck as part of the same payroll process.

  5. Click Save.

Review the sequence for all direct deposits. Edit the sequence for each direct deposit to ensure that the prioritization of each account is accurately set for your paycheck.
