The Postal Service is encouraging employees who don’t use direct deposit to receive their paychecks to sign up as soon as possible to avoid potential network disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
While no disruptions are expected, the organization wants employees to enroll in the direct deposit option as a precaution. Employees who already have direct deposit aren’t required to make changes.
If you currently receive hard copy paychecks, switching to direct deposit will ensure your wages are electronically deposited directly into your personal checking or savings account each payday.
By signing up before Wednesday, March 25, at 4 p.m. Eastern time, you can establish direct deposit and ensure your next paycheck is electronically deposited into your account.
Enrollments submitted after this deadline will continue to be processed but the direct deposit will occur in a later pay cycle.
Paychecks will enter the mailstream beginning Tuesday, March 31, for the Friday, April 3, payday.
To sign up for direct deposit, follow these instructions:
- Go to liteblue.usps.gov.
- Select PostalEASE under “Emplyoee Quick Apps – Quick Links.”
- In PostalEASE, enter your employee identification number and password. (If you don’t remember your password or need one assigned, select the “forgot password” option and you’ll be transferred to a verification page to obtain a new password.)
- Under the “Payroll” heading, select “Allotments / Payroll Net to Bank” and complete the worksheet.
If you have problems using PostalEASE or have questions, call the Human Resources Shared Service Center at 877-477-3273 and select Option 5, then request “benefits” when prompted. The TTY number is 866-260-7507.
