Help: Direct Deposit

Overview

The Direct Deposit self-service page in Wolverine Access allows you to set up the direct deposit of your net pay into a financial account. Reimbursements made through the procurement system will also be deposited into your main account.

Using this page, you can specify up to two accounts in which to deposit your net pay. The first account is required and specifies where your net pay will be deposited. The second account is optional and specifies a flat amount to be deposited. You can also change account information and deposit amounts using this page.

Important Information

  • If you are new to the University, you will be able to enter direct deposit information after your personal data has been entered into the system.
  • If you receive your paycheck via direct deposit, and then have the entire paycheck amount forwarded to a bank outside the United States, please advise the University Payroll office. The University must follow specific formatting requirements for these transactions. See the Contact Information at the bottom of this page.
