If you need to make changes to an existing dependant record, click on the Edit button, and make the necessary changes.
Note: Only Accounting can delete a dependant record. If you have added a dependant by mistake, please contact Accounting at firstname.lastname@example.org , indicating the dependant first name, last name and date of birth.
Direct Deposit Agreement
If you have not signed up for Direct Deposit, or have changed banking institutions, you will need to setup a Direct Deposit with OPSEU/SEFPO.
Located on the Home Page is a section to the right called Quick Links. Here you will find the link for Direct Deposit Agreement.
Once you click on the link, the Direct Deposit Agreement form will populate your First Name and Last Name, however you will need to update all the information that shows an asterisk (*), as well as upload a legible picture of your voided cheque or a Direct Deposit Agreement from your banking institution. If you do not see the name of your banking institution, please select “Other” in the dropdown menu.
Please make sure you are using a browser, with the latest version, such as Firefox, MS Edge, Chrome et al.
When completing your Direct Deposit Agreement, please make sure you have a legible image of a voided cheque, saved in the following acceptable file formats:
Once your banking information is submitted, without errors, you will receive a confirmation page with the option to Download, Print or Email a copy for your record. This also indicates, from our system, that a submission has been received by generating this confirmation page.
The system then sends your information to staff to process/vet before appearing on the portal under My Profile menu within the My Direct Deposit Info section. Depending on the volume of submissions, this may take two to three working days.
If you continue to experience difficulty, please send a screenshot to email@example.com so we may investigate further.
If you run into difficulty with the member portal, please click on the button on the left of the Home Page.
