Switch Pay Frequently

Asked Questions

Can I choose to divide my direct deposit to multiple Cornerstone accounts?

Yes! To deposit into multiple Cornerstone accounts, you will have to go through the set-up process twice by choosing a certain percentage or specific dollar amount for each the chosen account. Example: 50% to a Rewards checking account and then go back and select your share account for the other 50%.

Where is my deposit?
Once Switch Pay completes the direct deposit account switch, it may take two to three pay cycles for the payroll to update and for funds to flow into the new account. Some payroll systems are faster, while some take longer. Switch Pay does not track the deposit of funds in the member account.
