For one thing, you won’t have to stop at the bank to deposit your check. Money will be deposited into your account early payday morning. Direct deposit eliminates the risk of a lost or stolen check. A direct deposit account can be set up at any U.S. financial institution.
Direct deposit is the electronic transfer of your pay directly into your bank or credit union account. By transferring funds electronically, there is no need for a printed paycheck. Currently, more than 97% of all Ohio University employees are paid through direct deposit. To enroll in direct deposit, complete the Direct Deposit Form OR access My Personal Information and choose "Manage Payments and Direct Deposits".
