To save money and be more efficient Utah State University Payroll Office is replacing paper checks with a Pay Card. A pay card can be used as an alternative to traditional direct deposit for individuals without pre-existing bank accounts. By electing to use the paycard, you receive your net pay in a secure account that is set up and maintained by Wells Fargo Bank. This account is linked to the pay card, and can be used like a debit or credit card. For more information how to sign up and more on pay card please click here.
In rare circumstances an employee who is not able to have a bank account or apply for a pay card would have to fill out Direct Deposit /Pay Card Waiver Form to receive a paper check. This form needs to be approved by department and submitted for approval to Controller's Office Payroll. Keep in mind that filled out Direct Deposit /Pay Card Waiver Form does not guarantee issuance of a paper check. Approval of the waiver will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
Address changes can be made online using Self Service Banner (update the MA mail code) or complete and submit a Change of Address Form to the Payroll Office. All information from the Payroll Office is addressed to the (MA) mail code
