Introduction to Direct Deposit
Note: Direct deposit legal citations can be found under the Payment Processing Policy tab.
This tab is designed to assist state agencies and institutions of higher education that process direct deposit payments through TINS. Direct deposit instructions can be set up, changed or canceled in the TINS three ways:
- Online entry
- TINS batch transaction
- Through the payroll systems
The focus is on the processing of vendor payments unless payroll payments are specifically referenced.
