Note: For direct deposit to multiple accounts you must designate how the payment will be split in the Balance/Amount/ Percent section. In the first line, you can select either a Percentage or Amount that will be deposited to that account. In the second line, you will need to select the Balance so that Workday knows to deposit the remaining amount into the second account.
