    • I normally receive my pay through direct deposit but this payday I got a "live" check. Why?
      Often when a financial institution merges with another financial institution, account numbers and bank routing number may change. When these types of changes occur, our records have to be updated through a process called "pre-note". The pre-note may cause you to receive a "live" check until the account and routing number are verified.
