It will take two pay cycles to process the EFT Authorizations! After receipt of the form, the payroll office must process an Electronic Pre-Notification through the banking system. This is a test of the account numbers as provided by your form. During the test process, your check will be mailed to the home address you provided on the EFT authorization form. If the test process is successful, your check will be sent electronically to your bank the following pay cycle.
