Introduction to Direct Deposit

Note: Direct deposit legal cites 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.

For more information on payroll direct deposit, please see Electronic Funds Transfer – Direct Deposit in the Texas Payroll/Personnel Resource (FPP F.027) and the instructions for your agency’s payroll system:

  • USPS agencies use the New Hire/Processing a New Employee (HMPNH) screen to set up an employee for payment and the Direct Deposit (HØBUI) screen to set up an employee for direct deposit.
  • SPRS agencies set up an employee for payment when the new hire transaction is submitted to SPRS and submit a batch transaction using the 250 Record to set up an employee for direct deposit.
  • CAPPS HR/Payroll agencies set up an employee for payment when the new hire transaction is submitted to SPRS.
