Paychecks and Direct Deposit

Paychecks and Direct Deposit

The University of Minnesota pays employees on a biweekly basis, with each pay period starting on a Monday and ending on a Sunday. Employees are paid every other Wednesday, 10 days after the end of the pay period and receive paychecks one of two ways: a paper paycheck or Direct Deposit to a bank account.

Paper Paychecks:

Paychecks for employees who do not sign up for direct deposit are mailed on paydays to the home address on file. Employees can visit the MyU website and click on “MyInfo” to view or change their home address.

Direct Deposit:

Direct Deposit is a free service that electronically deposits employee paychecks directly into a bank account on paydays. To sign up for Direct Deposit:

  1. Visit the Office of Human Resources Employee Center website.
  2. Click on KeyLinks and then on Employee Center.
  3. Click on the "Direct Deposit" link under the My Pay section.
  4. Follow the user-friendly instructions. Once registered, employees can make changes or add additional accounts to their direct deposit.
