Direct Deposit

The Office of Payroll Support/Employment Verification encourages all employees to have direct deposit. Payroll direct deposit is the process by which your paycheck is electronically deposited to your checking or savings account.

Benefits of Direct Deposit

  • Peace of mind: No worries about mail delays and lost or stolen checks.
  • Convenience: No special trips to pick up and deposit checks.
  • Freedom: Payments are automatically deposited to your account, even if you are out of town or ill.
  • Savings: No check-cashing fees.


The Direct Deposit form is to be used for enrollment, changes, and cancellations. If you are e-mailing the completed form, password protect the form and e-mail to Payroll Support. The password should be sent in a separate e-mail.

Closing or Changing Your Bank Account Information

You must change or cancel your direct deposit at least seven business days prior to a payday to avoid having your funds deposited into a closed/invalid account. If the stop/change was not made in time, a paper check will be generated only after the funds are redirected back to us by the Office of the State Comptroller (there are no exceptions). You will be contacted when the check is available for pick-up.


If you have any questions regarding direct deposit, speak with any member of the Office of Human Resource Services, 718.951.5137.
