Direct Deposit Policy

All employees are required to have 100% of their net pay directly deposited into a bank account.  The employee is responsible for entering their correct bank information into the Human Resources (HR) database via Employee Self Service.  Direct deposit for newly hired employees should be established within 10 days of their start date. Individuals can split their net pay in up to five (5) distributions.  The distributions can be a mix of multiple financial institutions, as well as multiple checking and/or savings accounts.  Employee reimbursements issued via Accounts Payable will be direct deposited to the balance account identified by the employee via Employee Self Service. 

In the event the payroll system generates a live check, the employee will be contacted to pick-up the check from Central Payroll.  It will be necessary to provide a photo ID upon picking up a live check.  Check pick-up will be available on the payday, between 9am – 3pm.  Checks not picked-up by 3pm will be mailed on the afternoon of payday to the employee home address listed in Employee Self Service.
