Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is a requirement for all employees. While Federal Work Study students are not required to use direct deposit, they are strongly encouraged to do so. This policy is in accordance with UF regulation University rule 6C1-3.0422 which states, “All employees, including temporary hires and non-work study students, are required to participate in the Direct Deposit Program as a condition of employment, regardless of date of hire.”


Balance Account: Primary bank account for direct deposit. The system will only allow you to edit the balance account; you cannot delete the balance account.

Amount Account(s): Additional bank account(s) to have specific amount deposited. Amount must be entered in the system. Amount Account may be deleted. An employee may have two Amount Accounts in addition to the Balance Account.

Employees are required to make a change to their direct deposit account information should there be a change in their bank account or financial institution. Employees can change or EDIT an existing balance account or add an amount account online via the myUFL system (My Self Service > Payroll and Compensation > Direct Deposit).
