Direct Deposit is the fastest, safest, and easiest way for State of Illinois payees to receive their money. Vendors choose Direct Deposit because their money belongs in the bank, and not in the mail.

Warrant Inquiry

The Warrant Inquiry Form allows a vendor to enter the warrant number and determine if the payment has been cashed.
