Re: Direct Deposit requiring a pin

Hi there, SCFPD.


I'm here to get you pointed in the right right direction in determining how you can get your Direct Deposit pin.


You'll be able to get this pin when you verify the Direct Deposit bank account that you registered in QuickBooks. However, if you lost it, a quick and easy way to recover it is to change it from either the Account Maintenance page or the Send Payroll Data window. The steps below will guide you through the process:


Change PIN in Account Maintenance page

  1. From the Employees menu, select My Payroll Services, then Account/Billing Information.
  2. Sign in to your Intuit Account.
  3. In the Direct Deposit section, select the Update link next to the Direct Deposit PIN.
  4. Enter your current PIN, create a new PIN, and then confirm the new PIN.
  5. Click Submit.

Change PIN in the Send Payroll Data window

  1. From the Employees menu, choose Send Payroll Data.
  2. In the Send/Receive Payroll Data window, click Send.
  3. Select Forgot your PIN?
  4. In the Password field, enter your Admin password.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Enter a new PIN, then hit Submit.

Just a heads up, make sure that you're logged in as the Admin before you follow these steps. For additional insight, you can also check out this article: Change PIN for processing direct deposit payroll


That should do it. With these resources, I'm confident that you'll be able to recover the PIN for direct deposit.
