- Paper form or
- Galaxy Self-Service – Log in to Galaxy , then select “Gemini HR, Self Service” under the My Menu column. The link to the direct deposit screen is located under the “Payroll and Compensation” sub-menu.
In order for your paycheck to be directly deposited into an account, the direct deposit form must be submitted to the Payroll office along with a voided check and/or savings deposit slip before the Payroll office can process the request.
The form is due ten (10) days prior to the forms deadline (monthly or semi-monthly) and once entered will be in effect the following pay period after being processed. Your direct deposit advice will be available via Galaxy Self-Service .
The direct deposit process may take up to two pay periods to be completed, provided the form is properly completed and turned in to the Payroll office ten (10) days prior to the forms deadline (monthly or semi-monthly). The first pay period, the employee's check will be available at the Payroll office. The second pay period, the employee's check will be directly deposited into his/her bank account. The employee can view his/her direct deposit advice detailing earnings, deductions and net deposit via Galaxy .
If the employee wishes to change banks, he/she should make the change via preferred method (in Galaxy or by paper form.) The employee will pick up his/her next check at the Payroll office and the following check will be directly deposited into his/her new account.
