What happens when someone tries to pay your wages into a bank account which is closed?

I closed my bank account about a month ago. I just got my payslip from the agency I work for and it is dated that they ‘paid in’ my wages to the closed account on the 22nd. What would happen? Would the bank send me a cheque or try and contact me to tell me?

    Bank should notice the agency and cancel the direct-deposit .

    Not sure how things work in the UK, but in the US, it automatically reopens the bank account. The bank usually just sends a routine monthly statement showing the transaction.

    It’s very likely your employer transfers payments via BACS system to your bank; any incorrect or closed accounts do not accept money and it is credited back to the employers account; Talk to the accountants section at your employer, the money should be sat in their account.

    If paid by BACS the bank credit the paying company after 10 days. This payment may be by cheque.

    The other option is that the money is in a holding account with your bank.

    Contact the bank and the company you work for and you should get your answer.
