Direct Deposit Processing
Direct Deposit Checklist

Form Requirements

Always review the direct deposit form to ensure it is complete and includes:

  • An answer to the International ACH Transaction (IAT) question, with the completed ACH Payment Destination Confirmation form if the payee marks YES, or if your research before issuing direct deposit payments reveals a Y in the IAT IND field.
  • Legible payee identification and financial institution information.
  • An authorized signature.

If information is missing or illegible, never guess; contact your payee to verify.
