If you plan to start, change or cancel your Direct Deposit, you may do so online using the Northern Trust Benefit Payment Participant (BPP) Web Passport or by completing a Direct Deposit Form.
BPP Web Passport
To make your Direct Deposit election online, log in to BPP Web Passport and click on the "Direct Deposit" link from the "My Information" tab. After entering your information, click "Save" and your changes may take effect as early as your next pension payment - see the Pension Payment Schedule for a list of deadlines. If you make your election through BPP Web Passport, you do not have to submit a Direct Deposit Form or a cancelled or voided check to LAFPP.
Direct Deposit Form
If you prefer to mail your Direct Deposit election, please download and submit a completed Direct Deposit Form to the Retirement Services Section. Follow the instructions on the form to ensure that your information is accurate. If you are starting or changing your Direct Deposit information, be sure to include a cancelled or voided check with your form. Due to stringent deadlines, your form may not be processed until the month following receipt.
Things to Consider
- Once you set up your Direct Deposit account, your check will automatically be deposited on the last business day of each month - see the Pension Payment Schedule for actual dates. However, availability of funds may vary according to your financial institution. Your pension benefit statement will continue to be mailed to the mailing address we have on file; there is no option to remove such mailing.
- When changing or canceling your Direct Deposit, we suggest leaving your existing account open until your request has been completed. If your account is closed prematurely, you will need to wait for our receipt of the returned payment which will delay its reissuance. Please notify the Retirement Services Section immediately to prevent lengthy delays.
- If you decide to cancel your Direct Deposit election, future pension payments will be made by check and mailed to you at the address we have on file for you.
If you have questions regarding your Direct Deposit election, please contact the Retirement Services Section.
