All employees to be paid electronically

As of July 2019, Ohio State will no longer issue paper checks and will instead distribute pay solely by direct deposit. The vast majority of Ohio State employees are already receiving their pay electronically through direct deposit because it is fast, convenient and secure.

Employees have several options for setting up direct deposit. You may deposit your pay in a checking or savings account, or you can use an electronic paycard provided by Global Cash Card. Direct deposit offers a variety of convenient features, including:

  • Faster access to your funds, because your pay is available on the date your paycheck is issued

  • Flexibility, because you can draw your funds from a variety of banks or ATMs

  • A secure online system that reduces security issues associated with using the mail to deliver paper checks
