Accounts Payable

Direct Deposit

Payments made to employees are eligible for direct deposit into the employee's bank account. An online direct deposit system allows employees to request direct deposit for employee pay and/or reimbursements they receive. Student payments made through Banner are also eligible for this program.

Employee Payroll Payments

Wages paid to UCD employees through PPS/OPTRS are eligible for direct deposit. Interested employees can enroll in this service online.

Employee Reimbursements

All employee reimbursements made through KFS are eligible for this direct deposit program. When a reimbursement is submitted for an employee who has established direct deposit service, the payment issued will automatically be recorded with a check number beginning with the character 'E'. These payments can be tracked in FIS Decision Support as any other payment would be.

Any employee wishing to participate in the direct deposit program can enroll online. The enrollment is done using the employee's UCD Login ID and Kerberos passphrase. The website includes links to information on login IDs and passphrases.

Student Reimbursements 

Payments made to students, through Banner, are also eligible for direct deposit service. Interested students can also enroll for this service online, using their UCD Login ID and Kerberos passphrase.

Payment Notifications

All notifications to direct deposit recipients are made via e-mail, with the exception of employee pay. Payroll Services prints employee pay information on direct deposit statements that are delivered to the employee's home department. When the direct deposit participant establishes the service, they are asked to provide an e-mail address. Any changes made to their service, or payments made to their account, will generate an e-mail notification. Participants can sign up without an e-mail address, but they will not receive any notifications; therefore, it is strongly recommended that an e-mail address be provided.

Reimbursement notifications do not contain any sensitive information. Notifications of payment will simply direct the participant to login to the website, to get the details of the transaction. Note: there will be no printed payment confirmation (such as the Payroll Direct Deposit statement) sent to the recipient.
