FPP P.004

USPS Instructions

  1. Employees at Uniform Statewide Payroll/Personnel System (USPS) agencies return the completed PayCard Enrollment Authorization (74-224) PDF to their payroll offices.
  2. Agencies must review forms for legibility and completeness.
  3. Agencies must sign the State Agency Use Only section of enrollment forms certifying the required disclosure documents were received by the payee.
  4. Agency payroll offices submit the forms to Fiscal Management’s Payment Services section by encrypted email to tins.mail@cpa.texas.gov, fax to (512) 475-5424 or interagency mail.
  5. Fiscal Management staff enters the authorization form information in the Bank of America Prepaid Administration Tool (PAT).
  6. Fiscal Management sends a report to agencies with the routing and account numbers so agency staff can complete the setup of the direct deposit instructions for the paycard on the H0BUI (Direct Deposit) screen.
  7. The employee’s net pay can be loaded on the paycard based on the EFT instructions provided to USPS.

Note: Remember, the setup of direct deposit instructions for the paycard must be completed no later than 10 days before payrolls are processed to take effect for that pay period. A warrant will be issued for a payroll payment processed before the direct deposit instructions are active.
