Viewing Your Direct Deposit Advice

Beginning October 15, 2008 we will be issuing all Direct Deposit pay stubs via email. The benefits include:

  • It is a "Green" Solution, since direct deposit pay stubs can be saved electronically and only printed by the employee when necessary
  • Employees will receive their direct deposit pay stub no later than payday
  • Postage savings for departments that currently mail out direct deposit pay stubs
  • No more lost mail making the employee's payroll information more secure

Follow these directions to open and view your electronic Direct Deposit Advice (eDDA) on a Windows XP machine using EagleMail:

  1. You will receive your electronic Direct Deposit Advice (eDDA) as an email attachment (PDF) to your @emich.edu (a.k.a. your EagleMail account) email address no later than payday.
  2. Click the receipt.pdf attachment link.

  3. A Password dialog box displays prompting you for a password. Your password consists of the following:
    • Your last name up to 4 lowercase letters (Ex. If your last name is Smith - "smit")
    • Your 2 digit birth month (Ex. If your birth month is July - "07")
    • Your 2 digit birth date (Ex. If your birth date is the third - "03")
    • Password example - "smit0703"
  4. Click the OK button.

    Note: Please double-check that you are using the correct format when typing your password. There are a number of common errors being made: a) Typing the birth year instead of the birth month (ex. smit0783), b) Typing less than 4 numbers (ex. smit73), c) Using uppercase (ex. SMIT0703), or any combination of the three (ex. SMIT783).
  5. Your electronic Direct Deposit Advice (eDDA) displays.
