Question:

After the State Controller's Office receives my form, how long will it take for the change to occur?

 

Answer:

You can expect Direct Deposit of your paychecks to begin within 45 days after your form is received by the State Controller’s Office.  This time is necessary to verify that an active account exists with your financial institution.  Financial institutions are given 20 days to respond.  Once this verification has been completed, your next paycheck will be issued through Direct Deposit.
