Direct Deposit

The State of Rhode Island offers CCRI employees the option of receiving their net payroll amount via electronic deposit to a variety of financial institutions.  Employees who elect to have their checks direct deposited will receive an itemized pay stub each payday.

The following issues should be carefully considered when contemplating the use of direct deposit:

  • Employees will have access to their net pay amounts by 12:00 a.m. of each Friday payday, unless their financial institution is not a member of the New England Automated Clearinghouse.  If the financial institution is not a member of the clearinghouse, the electronic funds transfer may not occur on the State's payday.  It is the employee's responsibility to determine his/her financial institution's capabilities before deciding to participate in direct deposit.
  • If a holiday occurs on any day during the payroll processing week, your direct deposit will be made on the normal Friday payday (see State Calendar schedule).  The State Office of Accounts & Control publishes an annual calendar of direct deposit effective dates, which is available through the Payroll Office and on the Human Resources website.
  • An employee may change his/her direct deposit from one financial institution to another or may change the account to which the deposit is made within the same financial institution a maximum of once per year.

An employee must submit a direct deposit form to initiate all functions relating to direct deposit.  This form is available in the Office of Human Resources or may be downloaded below.

Please note that due to the pre-notification process, it may take a minimum of three pay periods for direct deposit to take effect.
