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.

Directly from Your Peers
“Direct deposit is very important to my agency. With the economic and budgetary issues facing the state of Texas, it is very important for us to save money. Saving money can not only increase job security, but it can also allow my agency to apply more of its resources toward helping individuals who need assistance from the state. Also, Texas taxpayers like to know that their state government is working to utilize their money more effectively and efficiently.” — Mary Lewis, Department of State Health Services
