How can we help?

Verify your bank account using instant bank verification

You can securely connect your bank account to your Gusto account using instant bank verification (IBV). We use a third party service called Plaid to instantly verify your bank account. We do not store your bank account’s username and password, and all of your bank credentials are encrypted.

Connect your bank account with IBV

After you have entered your routing and account number, you have the option to instantly verify your bank account.

  1. Select Verify Bank Account.
    • Note: If you do not wish to verify instantly, you can verify by receiving two test deposits to your account. Click verify your account manually to do this.
  2. Click Continue.
  3. Enter your online bank account username.
  4. Enter your online bank account password.
  5. Answer any security questions, if needed.
  6. If we are able to connect instantly to your account you will be able to return to the dashboard. If we cannot connect we will ask you to verify manually via two small test deposits. 
  7. If you experience any problems connecting your bank, please contact our Assurance team at assurance@gusto.com.
