    Allotments?

    Advertisements
    I am so completely clueless to the world of allotments.
    DH had me set one up on the 12th of last month that would go directly into my checking account to pay bills and such while I'm not working. Mypay shows that the allotment has been set up, but my bank has no record of incoming payments.
    How long does this process take? Will it only pay out on the 1st? Is there any way I can check to make sure everything was accepted?
    I called my bank this morning (wells fargo) and the woman I spoke to had no answers and basically told me to call back on the next business day to check again.
    I'm probably just being impatient, but I'd like to be able to plan ahead.

    It may not hit until the next check. It will be half of the amount of the allotment on the1st and half on the 15th.

    Thank you! I hate the uncertainty, but I guess I can wait another two weeks.

    Even though MyPay shows it is set up, they likely haven't sent anything yet. His End of Month LES will show the amount that was sent and to which institution. I would guess it'll be the 1st before you see anything in your bank.

    There are 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't

    No, I have allotments and the full amount comes on the 1st of each month. They take half out of each paycheck.

    It may not go through on the first paycheck, it has to be entered before a new pay period sometimes. If its not by next payday I'd bring it up
