Direct Deposit Bank Account Changes

Follow these steps to avoid missing or incorrect payments!
 
If you’ve switched bank accounts and need to have your pay deposited to your new account, you can make the change online or by mail.
 
Either way, please follow these two tips to avoid disruptions in pay:
  1. Only close your old bank account AFTER you have received one monthly payment to your NEW account.
  2. Please allow 30 – 45 days for the change to take affect across all our systems.
