Please note: submission of late hourly timesheets will result in a later payment. Employees will be notified of when they can expect their paycheck if it will be paid at a later date.

Direct Deposit
If the employees prefer to have their pay deposited into their bank account instead, they may sign up for Direct Deposit. To do so, employees may follow the instructions:

There is a waiting period before Direct Deposit takes effect, which is determined by the payroll system and the entry date of the request. If a payroll payment is generated during the waiting period, a paper check will be produced. Changing the bank information in between pay periods may result in a paper check.

From the People page on the Berkeley Business Portal, click on the blue People tab, then click on Direct Deposit in the yellow Self-Service Menu on the left. Choose one of the following: Add to set up a new Direct Deposit account, Edit to change your current Direct Deposit account information, Delete to cancel Direct Deposit.

To add or edit:
1. Choose Direct Deposit Account Type: Checking or Savings.
2. Type the bank Transit Number (first nine digits in the lower left corner of your check or savings deposit slip).
3. Type your Account Number. (Do not include dashes or spaces.)
4. If you wish to receive a paper earnings statement verification of your direct deposit – click on Print and Send to Home Dept.
5. Click Save.

 

Earnings Statements

Earnings statements are available in electronic format at the UC Office of the President's At Your Service Website. Please review the At Your Service FAQ if you have trouble accessing the site. You can contact UC Customer Service at customer.service@ucop.edu or call at 1-800-888-8267.

If an employee has multiple job appointments, the earnings statement will be directed to the "home" department.

When an employee terminates and is rehired, it is considered a "break-in service and their bank information will remain in the Blu Portal. However, the information remains inactive unless it is re-entered by the employee. Generally, it takes about a month for direct deposit to activate after entry so the first check will be a paper check. To inquire about the activation date of the direct deposit, please contact Team 9 Payroll at respayroll@berkeley.edu.
