Screen Overview

NOTE: This screen can be accessed only if Allow Distributions is set to “Y” in the default Payroll Group parameters.

This screen is used to set up the Distribution Accounts to which payroll funds will be distributed once they have been deposited into the base deposit account. For example, a member could have funds transferred to a Christmas Club account, or make a payment on a loan. Any existing distributions that have already been set up will appear in the list.

To create or modify a distribution record, enter the account base and suffix and use Enter (or select the item in the list and use Select) to proceed to the distribution detail screen.
