Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is available for all employees through the Michigan Automated Clearing House Association (MACHA ) The University will deposit your paycheck electronically into an account you designate at any financial institution within the U.S.

Your pay will be automatically deposited into your checking or savings account safely and confidentially on pay day. You are provided with a detailed earnings statement accessible on the Employee Self-Service Portal. In addition, your financial institution will provide a monthly statement to let you know your account has been credited.

Enrollment is simple.

However, we have temporarily disabled the SS (Employee Self Service) option for signing up for direct deposit. Currently we can only accept direct deposit authorization forms in paper format.
