Use Direct Deposit for Benefit Payments

July 29, 2015

When on-the-job injury and illness occur, no one wants to wait to longer than necessary to receive workers’ compensation benefits. One way to avoid delays in payment is to apply for NYSIF Direct Deposit.

Eligible claimants or their beneficiaries who have signed up for direct deposit don’t have to wait for their checks to arrive in the mail and don’t have to make a trip to the bank to deposit or cash their checks. In cooperation with your financial institution, NYSIF can deposit benefit payments directly into your bank account, safe and secure. Your check can never be lost or stolen.

NYSIF’s new application allows you to fill out the form online before mailing it to us. Visit to learn more about applying for Direct Deposit.

Visit our Claimants section to learn more about claimant benefits, our pharmacy locator, and what you can do to ensure you receive appropriate medical treatment and timely payments from NYSIF.

NYSIF encourages claimants to take advantage of Direct Deposit and make the switch from paper checks to this free service.
