Direct Deposit changes via SSB (Self Service Banner) - Due to an increasing number of phishing scams where employees give away their username and password information to criminals, Payroll has decided to implement a new process when a direct deposit changes occurs using SSB.  Payroll will not activate the direct deposit change until confirmation of change is made via phone.  Today when an employee makes a direct deposit change on SSB, they receive an email confirmation of the change.  Going forward, Payroll will proactively contact those employees to ensure the safety of our payroll.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 765-285-8461.
