Direct Deposit (EFT)

With Direct Deposit, your money will be available to you when your financial institution opens for business on the payment date. Banks, savings and loan associations, and credit unions are eligible to accept such deposits.

There can be only one financial institution's account information on file for one federal tax identification number (SSN or FEIN). Payments cannot be sent to two or more financial institutions.

Complete the Direct Deposit Authorization form with original signatures and then mail it to the Direct Deposit Section as directed on the form. Faxed or emailed forms will not be accepted.

If you are not a business entity, but will be receiving payments from the State of Florida, complete Section 1 of the form with your name and contact information.
