Direct Deposit For State Employees

Enrollment Information

The Electronic Direct Deposit Program offers employees greater flexibility in choosing a financial institution, and provides a cost-effective method of servicing the banking needs for Stony Brook employees.

Eligible employees may elect to direct deposit their net salary into an account at any bank, savings and loan associations, Federal or State chartered credit union, or similar institution that has Automated Clearing House (ACH) capabilities, and chooses to participate in the New York State Electronic Direct Deposit Program. All Financial Institutions are required to have funds available at the opening of business on payday.

On payday, you will receive an Advice (statement). The net amount on the Advice is the amount which was credited to your account.

Procedures

If you wish to participate in the Electronic Direct Deposit Program:

  1. Complete the Direct Deposit enrollment form. Please note that this is the only form we accept for enrollment and changes. The Office of the State Comptroller suggests that you attach a voided personal check to the application, if you wish to deposit your net salary into your checking account. If you wish to deposit your check into your savings account, account number and bank routing number must be provided.
  2. Sign the enrollment form. The joint account holder, if applicable, must also sign the form.
  3. Completed form can be submitted at New Employee Orientation or mailed directly to:
