Direct Deposit Hardship

Pursuant to 15 ILCS 405/9.03(c), all state payments for an employee's payroll or an employee's expense reimbursement, and all state payments to a vendor that exceed the allowable limit of paper warrants in a fiscal year, must be made through direct deposit. Any state employee or vendor requesting an exemption from this direct deposit mandate due to hardship may petition for hardship status. You will be notified via e-mail that your hardship petition has been approved or denied at a later date.
 

State Employees

You can submit your hardship petition online or download a copy of the petition to complete and mail in to the Office of the Comptroller. Approved hardship petitions will be in effect for payroll as well as expense reimbursement.
