Payroll and Employee Benifits

Direct Deposit

Effective July 1, 2010, all employees are required to authorize electronic direct deposit of their payroll. Direct deposit is a safe and secure way to have your pay deposited directly into your checking and/or saving account(s). Ball State University will electronically transfer your pay into your choice of bank account(s); the money will automatically be deposited into your account(s) on pay day.

Direct deposit offers many advantages over checks, including:

  • Security – with direct deposit, you don't have to worry about lost, stolen or misplaced checks.
  • Reliability – you no longer need to wait for your department to pick up and issue your checks. You can have peace of mind knowing your money will always be in your account on time.
  • Flexibility – if you decide, you can allocate your payroll into two separate accounts. If you need to switch accounts or financial institutions, it's easy to change your direct deposit arrangements. You simply need to complete a new Direct Deposit Authorization Form and return it to the BSU Payroll & Employee Benefits (AD 029).

Effective October 1, 2010 direct deposit stubs will no longer be printed by the Payroll & Employee Benefits Office. You can access your direct deposit payroll statement via Employee Self Serve
