Enroll in the Direct Deposit Program
Improved participation is the goal.
It's so easy, convenient and efficient!
Less than 60% of District employees take advantage of the convenience and security of direct deposit. In addition to the the potential for losing your paycheck, the added cost of driving to a bank and waiting in line is another reason to sign-up for direct deposit.
Enrollment forms are available by accessing your Employee Access Center.
There is no cost to enroll in the Direct Deposit Program and participation can easily be terminated if you decide that you no longer wish to enjoy the safety and security. Deposits will begin to go directly to your bank or credit union within 2-3 pay periods following submission of your application. You will receive a paycheck within 1-2 pay periods following submission of your written request to terminate your participation.
Apply now to begin enjoying the convenience.
