Change an employee's payment method to direct deposit

If your employee is set up for a check payment method, they can change this to direct deposit directly from their own Gusto account. You can also make this adjustment for them using the following steps:

  1. Click the People tab.
  2. Click your employee’s name.
  3. Go to the Job & Pay section.
  4. In the Payment Methods section click Add Method.
  5. Enter the routing number, account number, account type, and display name–make sure all information is accurate.
    • We'll send a test deposit to the account number entered–if we receive an error, the information may need to be updated and verified. This may take a few days.
  6. Click Save.

Once the bank account has been verified, your employee will be paid through direct deposit whenever you run payroll.

Note: You can add up to 5 bank accounts for direct deposit. Read the details in this article if you're trying to change the payment method for a termination payroll.
