Re: Does anyone know how to correct a missed direct deposit payroll??

Hello there, @gammy_sharon.


Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us here on the Community page. I'd be glad to help run/correct your missed direct deposit payroll.


If you referring to not being able to create a paycheck for direct deposit to a specific employee on a certain pay period, then, you can simply create a manual paycheck and hand-over it to your employee. Before doing the steps, you may need to change the payment method of your employee to Paper Check and change it back to Direct Deposit once completed. Here's how:


  1. Click on Workers at the left pane.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Select your employee's name.
  4. Click on the pencil icon beside Pay.
  5. Under How do you want to pay employee?, select the edit (pencil) icon.
  6. In the drop-down, select a new pay method. If you are changing to direct deposit, you will need the contractor or the employee's bank routing number, bank account number, and the type of account (checking or savings).

For further details about creating a paycheck, you can check this article: Create paychecks in online payroll.
