Why is direct deposit required by the District?

  1. Direct deposit is a fast, safe, convenient, private, environmentally-friendly and inexpensive way to electronically distribute your payroll funds.
  2. With direct deposit there is no risk of lost, stolen or misplaced payroll checks. (If your missing check needs to be reissued, it may take up to three (3) business days for you to receive a replacement check.)
  3. Direct deposit eliminates the need to wait in line at the bank; funds are available on pay day from any ATM machine.
  4. Direct deposit also ensures that there will be no delay in receipt of your funds due to unforseen courier issues.


You may set up direct deposit into up to three (3) accounts (checking or savings) nationwide.
