Direct Deposit

It’s easy, it’s safe, and it’s green!

As a new Boston University employee, you are required to set up a direct deposit account for your paycheck. This can easily be done by visiting BUworks Central and accessing Employee Self-Service (ESS). You will need your BU user name and Kerberos password.

You will have access to your information at BUworks Central via ESS as soon as the necessary paperwork has been processed.

Once you set up your direct deposit account, you will be able to view your salary statement online—just go to BUworks Central and select ESS. Your Kerberos password will ensure your privacy. On your designated payday, you will receive an email notifying you that you have been paid.

Please note that employees working in positions represented by Local 615 should establish a direct deposit account using the same method.
