Direct Deposit Instructions

Direct Deposit can be set up online. If you have never set up direct deposit before:

  1. Log into www.VandalWeb.uidaho.edu.
  2. Click on the “Employee Menu” tab or the “Employee Information” link.
  3. Under Payroll click on “Direct Deposit Review or Update”.
  4. Click on “Update Direct Deposit Allocation”.
  5. Enter your Bank Routing Number as seen in the example below, your routing number is found in the bottom left corner of your checks. If this is a savings account you may need to contact your bank and ask them for the routing number.
  6. Once the routing number is entered, the bank name will automatically appear to the right. Please note: if the bank’s name does not match please stop and contact Payroll directly. We will need to see a voided check in order to update the routing number and bank name association.
  7. Enter your Account Number. This should be the next series of numbers found on your check after the routing number. Be sure that you do not include your check number.
  8. Re-Enter Account Number a second time to ensure accuracy.
  9. Select from the drop down box Account Type: Checking or Savings.
  10. Then you need to indicate if this is going to be a flat dollar amount or percentage you are contributing to this account. If you want all of your payroll check to go into this account, enter 100 percent.
  11. If you enter a specific dollar amount or percentage, the remaining amount will be entered as a check and then sent to your check mailing address. If you want to split this between multiple accounts enter the percentage or dollar amount and then click on Save. Then click on Update Direct Deposit allocation and enter the other account information the same as above. Then select Remaining amount for the rest of your payroll check to go into this account.
