Direct Deposit Inquiry Screens
Financial Institution Information (BANKIN)

The Financial Institution Information (BANKIN) screen displays contact information for financial institutions that are eligible to receive direct deposit payments from the state. The screen is updated once a month. The nine-digit transit code is required for inquiries on the BANKIN screen.

A payee’s transit code can be found on the Payee Distribution – Direct Deposit (PYDIST) screen or on the Direct Deposit Authorization form. If the transit code on a Direct Deposit Authorization form is not on the BANKIN screen, the direct deposit setup and/or change will not process in TINS.

Access

The BANKIN screen may be accessed either through INQMEN or a Line 1 entry from any TINS screen.

Steps:

  1. Follow the instructions for the INQMEN Menu

    Note: The TRANSIT CODE is required: Enter the financial institution’s nine-digit routing number.

    –OR–

    Enter BANKIN.(Nine-digit routing number) on Line 1 and press Enter.

    Note: The BANKIN screen does not require a TIN.

  2. Press Enter to display BANKIN with the financial institution information.

    Note: If the nine-digit number is invalid or not on file, TINS displays the message Invalid Bank Transit Code.

  3. Use the direction message keys to navigate through the screen information.
