Payees in Fingercheck are agencies to whom an employer must send money for an employee who has debts. Typically, these debts come to an employer as a court notice and can come in many different formats, such as Child Support, Income Withholding, or Wage Garnishment. To establish direct deposit or generate a check, you must set up payee information in Fingercheck.

  • On the employee's file if the payee and deduction applies to a specific employee.

To apply a payee to a deduction code, edit the Payee field deduction code. (Go to SETUP > Payroll > Deductions. For more information, see How to create Deduction Codes.)

To apply a payee for a specific employee's deduction:

  1. Go to the EMPLOYEES tab.

  2. Click the employee’s name to open their details.

  3. Select Payroll > Deductions.

  4. Click the Edit icon (pencil) for the deduction. (Or click Add to create a new deduction.)
