OVERVIEW
Grant Recipients must have established, active accounts in the Payment Management System (PMS) in order to

It is the responsibility of the Awarding Agency to provide the requisite Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form (SF-1199A)
and DPM’s Contact Information Form to the grantee for completion. It is also the Awarding Agency’s
responsibility to ensure the accuracy of the forms’ information prior to forwarding them to DPM for processing.
Who must complete these forms?
SF-1199A - Section 1 is to be completed by the grant recipient. Section 2 is to be completed by the Awarding
Agency. Section 3 is to be completed by the recipient’s financial institution. More complete instructions can be

The recipient must complete the Contact Information Form. The
Primary Contact on the form should be the

in the Payment Management System. The memo must include the name of the organization as it appears on the SF-

SPECIAL NOTICE TO JOINT ACCOUNT HOLDERS
Joint account holders should immediately advise both the Government agency and the finan-
cial institution of the death ofa beneficiary. Funds deposited after the date of death or ineligibility,
except for salary payments, are to be returned to the Government agency. The Government agency
will then makea determination regarding survivor rights, calculate survivor benefit payments, if any,
and begin payments.
CANCELLATION
The agreement represented by this authorization remains in effect until canceled by the reci-
pient by notice to the Federal agency or by the death or legal incapacity of the recipient. Upon cancella-
tion by the recipient, the recipient should notify the receiving financial institution that he/she is
doing so.
The agreement represented by this authorization may be cancelled by the financial institution
by providing the recipienta written notice 30 days in advance of the cancellation date. The recipient
must immediately advise the Federal agency if the authorization is cancelled by the financial institu-
tion. The financial institution cannot cancel the authorization by advice to the Government agency.
CHANGING RECEIVING FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
The payee’s Direct Deposit will continue to be received by the selected financial institution until
the Government agency is notified by the payee that the payee wishes to change the financial in-
stitution receiving the Direct Deposit. To effect this change, the payee will complete the new SF 1199A
at the newly selected financial institution. It is recommended that the payee maintain accounts at
both financial institutions until the transition is complete, i.e. after the new financial institution receives
the payee’s Direct Deposit payment.
