Information for State Agencies


Today's economy calls for agencies to save money wherever possible, which is why the State of Texas has made direct deposit a top priority.

How You Can Promote Direct Deposit

State agencies serve a critical role in promoting direct deposit to their vendors, employees and other payees. The Comptroller's office is here to support your efforts every step of the way. We offer downloadable promotional materials (both print and Web) and staff dedicated to helping you understand and promote direct deposit.
