    E-checks are a safe and secure way to make sure your money gets into your account in a quick and effortless manner on your part and avoids mailing delays, postage costs, risk of lost checks, unnecessary handling or holding in A/P, and trips to the bank.

    It is the employee’s/student’s responsibility to update the account if there are any changes in the bank information (ie: account closed, etc.). Make changes via WebAdvisor. Each change to the bank information will require verification and may take 7-10 business days.

Exceptions

There are certain limited circumstances under which payment by paper check rather than direct deposit is necessary or justified, including:

Foreign Nationals

Because U.S. financial institutions generally require a valid SSN for mandatory federal reporting purposes, foreign nationals who experience a waiting period before being issued a SSN may encounter difficulty in opening an account with a U.S. financial institution. Such individuals will be paid by paper check.

International ACH Transaction (IAT)

Linfield College is obligated to comply with the requirements of the United States Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which oversees payments sent outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States. This includes automated clearing house (ACH) payments, such as direct deposits of payments to students or employees. At this time the College is unable to process ACH direct deposit payments that are outside the United States.  Therefore, such payments will instead be processed using paper checks or processed through our peerTransfer International Wire program.
