Enroll in Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is a convenient method to automatically deposit all of your net earnings into the financial institution of your choice. Once you enroll, all your payments, including supplemental payments such as overtime, awards/bonuses, etc., are transferred to your financial institution.

Each agency / campus has the authority / option of establishing its own eligibility requirements. For example, agencies / campuses may elect to establish minimum leave balance criteria to ensure that participant absences can be covered with compensable time. Please contact your Personnel / Payroll Office to determine your eligibility.

Employees who wish to enroll must complete a Standard Form 699 (Direct Deposit Authorization Form). You can obtain one of these forms from your Personnel/Payroll Office or print a Standard Form 699 from the Department of General Services website. Upon completion, return the form to your Personnel / Payroll Office for review of your eligibility. Once this form is received by our office, we will notify your financial institution. This "Pre-notification" allows them to verify your account and routing numbers for future disposition of funds.
