Direct Deposit

Via authorization form or Employee Self-Service Center

What Is Direct Deposit?
Direct deposit is the electronic transfer of a payment directly from the account of the payer to the recipient's account.  Direct deposit is a safe and easy way to have your salary deposited directly into your checking or savings account into bank accounts of your choice.

Benefits of Direct Deposit

  • It's convenient—no more trips to the bank.
  • It's safe and reliable—protects against the loss or theft of checks.
  • You can still access your funds, even if you're out of town, sick, or busy.
  • It helps you manage your money—you may have your paycheck deposited into multiple accounts.

How Do I use Direct Deposit?
Complete a direct deposit authorization form to establish a direct deposit account or enroll on-line via the Employee Self-Service Center, follow links to Direct Deposit Breakdown.

The following bank information is required:

  • ABA Routing number:  Bank routing number or routing transit number (RTN) is a nine digit number used to identify a financial institution.  The routing number appears at the bottom of your bank-issued checks. They can also be found on on-line banking sites of the financial institution.  Please contact your financial institution if you are unsure of your routing number. 
  • Account number:  Your complete account number(s)
  • Account type:  Indicate checking or savings account.
  • Verification of Account:  If you enroll via direct deposit form, please provide a void check or documentation of savings account number from your bank.   Link to form:  Direct Deposit Form (PDF)*

Pre-note process:
A pre-note process is required by the bank for each new direct deposit account that is recorded in the system. During this period a paper check will be issued while the account is tested. Direct deposit will usually start within one to two pay periods.  A direct deposit advice that details your gross pay, associated deductions, and net amount deposited to your bank account is available on-line via the Employee Self-Service Center.

Remember to notify the Payroll Department immediately of any bank account changes.

Stopping a Direct Deposit

If necessary, notify the Payroll Department immediately to stop direct deposit for an upcoming payment.  A new direct deposit authorization request must be submitted to the Payroll Department for any changes or you may complete the change on-line via Employee Self-Service Center.

Do not close an account before stopping your direct deposit.  If you close an account before the Payroll Department is notified, payment may be delayed while funds are recovered.  An off-cycle check is then generated.

Direct deposit remains in effect until you request to inactivite it.
You may inactivate your bank accounts via Employee Self-Service Center or complete the direct deposit form and forward to Payroll.

Changing a Direct
Changes to direct deposit accounts generally take one to two pay periods to process.  An actual check will be issued between the inactivation of your current and the activation of your new account unless you choose to waive the pre-note process.

Reporting Accounts Close Due to Fraudulent Activity
Contact the Payroll Department immediately if your bank account(s) must be closed due to fraudulent account activity.  If the Payroll Department receives notice regarding a closed account after Tuesday of a pay week, your payment may be delayed.
