New Deadlines to Sign Up for Direct Deposit

With more than 2,500 employees still receiving paper paychecks, university officials are encouraging folks to go direct deposit.    

On campus paycheck pick-up will end when UCPath goes live on October 1. Instead, employees still receiving paper paychecks will get them in the mail after payday.

Employees are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit to avoid any delays in getting paid. Paper paychecks will be mailed through the U.S. Postal Service from a facility in Arizona when UCPath goes lives. Any employee who has not signed up for Direct Deposit should visit AYSO to sign up.

Employees who are paid monthly need to sign up by July 31st for the changes to take effect on October 1st — the first pay date under UCPath. Employees paid on a bi-weekly basis should sign up by August 20th to ensure his or her changes take effect on the October 3rd pay date. If you miss these deadlines, please wait to update your information and sign up for Direct Deposit until after UCPath goes live in October. No further action is required if you're already signed up for Direct Deposit.

Signing up for Direct Deposit is the only way to ensure your paycheck gets to your bank account on payday. When UCPath launches, UC Davis will also launch the UC Pay Card, which is the new option for non-represented employees who don’t want to use a conventional bank account. They are reloaded each pay day and act like a debit card—accepted anywhere Visa‐logo cards are accepted. Read more about the UC Pay Card here
