Add or Edit Direct Deposit Information Online

Los Rios employees can add or edit direct deposit information directly via the Employee Self-Service (ESS) portal.

Effective Dates

Direct deposit changes made on or before the 15th of the month will be in effect for the upcoming regular and/or variable payroll. Changes made after the 15th of the month may not be in effect until the following month's regular and variable payroll.

For example, if you change your direct deposit information on June 15, then it will be effective for the June 30 regular payroll and/or the July 10 variable payroll. If you change your direct deposit information on June 16, then it may not be effective until the July 31 regular payroll and/or the August 10 variable payroll.


By using the ESS direct deposit functionality, you authorize Los Rios to deposit your paycheck to the account(s) you have specified. It is your responsibility to make sure that you enter accurate banking information and that your accounts are open when Los Rios distributes your paycheck per your direct deposit instructions.

If you make an error when entering your banking information or if your account is closed when the direct deposit is made, then there may be a delay in receiving your paycheck of ten or more business days.
