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. If you are an employee and want to change your payment method, follow the steps in this article

You can also make this adjustment for them using the following steps:

  1. Click the People section and select Team members.
  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.
