Featured Story by Jessica Knapik

I'm all for making life easier.  It saves time, money, and effort.

Direct Deposit

This is a life saver.  Physical paychecks are becoming a thing of the past.  Today many businesses electronically transmit their payroll to bank accounts.  There is no need to stop at the bank, cash a check, or make a deposit.

Refund Checks

If you receive refund checks from Walsh, I'd suggest you sign up for Direct Deposit.  Setting it up is easy and only takes a few minutes.  Disbursements are sent to that account within 3-5 business days.  Confirmation will be sent to your Walsh e-mail.  For details, contact the Business Office 248-823-1620.
