  • Follow the steps, which include searching for your employer and entering the login credentials used to access your employer payroll portal. 
  • Then complete the remaining steps to indicate your preferences and update your direct deposit information with your employer.

Set up Direct Deposit with your employer:


Reach out to your employer (Human Resources department) and  provide them with your routing and account number which you can find in the app. Sign in, then:

  • Tap Account in main menu at bottom of screen
  • Tap on Virtual Card or choose Card Settings from the submenu under Account at the top of the page
  • You’ll be prompted to enter your 4-digit PIN (or create one if you haven’t already)

Then, simply toggle on the See Account Details option to view your account and routing numbers.
