Pay and Direct Deposit Posting Dates

While most financial institutions post funds to accounts at the beginning of the bank business day, this is not a universal practice. Some institutions post funds in the afternoon. We recommend you check with your financial institution to determine when your funds will be available.

Please note that the dates shown in the below schedules represent pay dates for employees paid on an anticipatory monthly or semi–monthly basis. For semi–monthly, this is only for Caltrans Highway Labor Force and Department of General Services Office of State Publishing employees. These dates do not apply to employees paid intermittently throughout the month.
