Banks vary on how long it takes to process, and it can depend on when the employer submits it. He needs to ask them both what happened.

My experience is two or three pay cycles. It may take more, but you should see a “ZERO” deposit at least once.

In my experience, it’s been about 3 weeks.

My employer processes requests for direct deposit once a month. If I miss that deadline by one day, then I might have to wait another 2–4 weeks beyond the next time my employer processes my direct deposit request.

In short, the answer is “it depends” based on your particular circumstance.

My employer says allow one month for the change to take place but it took about 3 weeks.
