Employees can enroll for direct deposit via the on-line direct deposit feature now available at the U@Penn portal a quick and easy option that automatically deposits pay into a personal U.S. bank account every payday.

Employees should always stop Direct Deposit BEFORE closing an account at the bank!

In these times when banks are merging branches on a regular basis; it is absolutely imperative that every employee who participates in the direct deposit program open and examine their advices every pay period.

Please notify all employees in your ORG that they should check this every time they receive an advice.
