Enroll / Change Direct Deposit

UC Davis employees are encouraged to receive their pay through direct deposit.

Participation in this environmentally-friendly payment preference includes the following benefits:

  • Provides safe and secure methods of payment to employees.
  • Improves service delivery to employees and campus departments.
  • Availability of funds on payday.
  • Support "go green" sustainability efforts.

Employees enjoy the convenience of having pay deposited to their preferred bank or credit union account. No more trips to the bank to deposit or cash your paycheck.

Direct Deposit can take up to 30 calendar days to take effect. While the direct deposit enrollment is in the processing stage, please work with your department payroll representative or service center for paycheck pick-up.
