Pasadena ISD requires DIRECT
DEPOSIT of all employees. The major benefit is the guarantee that
paychecks will be deposited in your account every payday, even when you are ill
or on vacation. It is especially beneficial for those employees who are not
working during the summer. Direct deposit is an attractive and feasible option
for employees to receive their paychecks. The payroll department has the
capability of sending your check direct deposit into five (5) different
accounts. There is no need to stand in line at the bank or worry that your
check is lost or stolen in the mail.
The popularity of the ATM/DEBIT card
has increased incredibly over the past fifteen years. The ATM machine has
become so common in our society that we now can find one at every bank, shopping
mall, Wal-Mart, grocery store, etc. There has never been a better time to get
on direct deposit.
To sign up for Direct Deposit,
you must fill out a direct deposit form available from the Payroll website or
dept. or sign up through Employee Self Service online. Complete and return it along with a voided check or an account
confirmation slip from the bank to
the Payroll Department. New or changed accounts will go into affect
immediately. When you are on
direct deposit, you will receive a pay stub showing deductions, vacation or non
duty hours, sick leave hours, gross pay and net pay deposited.
