On May 21, 2010, the Department of Administration announced the implementation of a policy of 100% direct deposit for employee payroll effective with all payments made on or after October 1, 2010. The last paper paycheck to be issued was dated September 17, 2010.
Employees with an existing checking or savings account are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit by going to Employee Self Service, or completing an Authorization for Direct Deposit of Employee Pay (pdf) and submitting it to the Division of Human Resources.

The State of Kansas has renewed its partnership with Skylight Financial, Inc. (associated with U.S. Bank) to provide a Skylight paycard to employees who do not elect to have their payroll directly deposited to a checking or savings account. The Skylight paycard is an FDIC insured ATM/debit-based bank account where pay and other deposits, such as travel and expense reimbursements, can be made. Those employees who do not have an account at a financial institution (credit union, bank, saving institution) will be assigned the Skylight pay card.
