Self Service Direct Deposit Information on PAWS

A link is now available on PAWS - Admin Services tab, "My Employment" channel that allows employees to change their direct deposit information or if they are a brand new employee, add direct deposit information. This option for providing bank information gives employees the flexibility to complete the information on line, at their convenience.

The link is available to all monthly and hourly paid employees, with an existing Employee ID. This includes current or past employees.

A brand new employee to the University will be able to access this link once an Employee ID has been assigned. The Employee ID is assigned once the initial "Hire" has been posted to the About-US system.

The Bank ID and Branch ID entered are validated against a current file of active Canadian Financial Institutions from the Canadian Payment Association. Confirm that the bank information entered matches the banking institution where your account was set up. The account number cannot be validated. Please ensure this number is entered correctly.

Any changes to bank information should be submitted as early in the pay period as possible to ensure information is processed for the current pay.If an employee is paid at month end, the change should be submitted by the 15th of the month, but can be submitted up until the final pay processes for the month have been run. Anything submitted after the final processes have been run will be dated after the pay day and take effect with the next pay.

Example - Monthly paid

For the month of April 2011, payday is April 29, 2011 and the final pay processes will be run on April 25th. Direct Deposit information submitted after the final pay processes have been run will be active for the next pay period.

Example - Hourly paid

For hours worked in March, payday is April 14, 2011 and the final pay processes will be run on April 11th. Direct Deposit information submitted after the final pay processes have been run will be active for the next pay period.
