Direct deposit of an employee’s paycheck is available to all employees. With payroll direct deposit, an employee’s pay is immediately available on the pay date. Payroll direct deposit information is maintained in Employee Self Service. Changes submitted by the 10th of the month are effective in the current month. Employees are strongly encouraged to keep their existing bank account open until their paycheck has been received into their new bank account. See “Direct Deposit Maintenance” under “Resources” for additional information.
Requests for verification of employment may be faxed to the Payroll Department at 214-496-6047 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Employee authorization must be provided with the request. Please allow 3 – 5 business days for processing. Verifications that do not require financial information may call the Payroll/HR Compensation Analyst at 214-496-8073.
Automatic payroll deductions for the Texas Teacher Retirement System (TRS) and federal income tax are required for all full-time employees. Employees can view and update their federal income tax status and withholdings in Employee Self Service on the “Pay/Tax Information” screen. Changes approved by the payroll due date will be reflected in the applicable paycheck (see Payroll Calendars under Resources).
Medicare tax deductions are required for all employees hired after March 31, 1986. Temporary and part-time employees who are not eligible for TRS membership must be enrolled in the PST retirement annuity plan or have FICA tax withheld from their paychecks, as determined by the district.
Additional information regarding payroll deductions is available under Resources.
