Employees and students may complete a form online at Duke@Work. The form is located under the My Pay tab. Please note that Foreign National employees who do not have a valid US Social Security Number are not eligible for direct deposit.
The effective date generated by Duke@Work is the day after the most current pay date. The direct deposit change you just processed will be effective in the next available pay date after the account information is validated.
An example for a biweekly employee: the biweekly employee goes into Duke@Work and signs up for direct deposit on November 29, 2010. The upcoming pay date is December 3, 2010. Duke@Work gives the employee an effective date of December 4, 2010. Duke then validates the accuracy of the account information on December 10 by sending a penny deposit to the account. Once the account is validated, the direct deposit will be effective for the next available pay date which is December 30, 2010.
An example for a monthly employee: the effective date Duke@Work provides is the first day of the month in which the direct deposit is effective.
Employees should remember that is may take up to 30 days for direct deposit to become effective.
All cancellations of direct deposit must be submitted on a Direct Deposit Authorization form. Please note that this form cannot be emailed or faxed. Original signatures are required.
Section II of the Direct Deposit Authorization Form has an option to cancel your Direct Deposit. You need only fill out Sections I, II and IV for Corporate Payroll Services to process your request.
As long as you have not submitted a Direct Deposit Authorization form to change or cancel direct deposit, funds have been sent to your bank. Call your bank and ask to speak with someone in the "ACH" department. They will be able to tell you if there were any problems in depositing your money into your account. If you did make a change or cancel your direct deposit, contact your department payroll representative.
Students and Duke Temporary Services employees can be placed in over-allocated positions. People in over-allocated positions can have the same SAP position number as another employee. Keep in mind that employees in the same position must have the same approvers when using the electronic time reporting system.
The default cost center will be a departmental cost center. Grant codes cannot be used as the default code.
