Apply for direct deposit to a U.S. account

Send us a form if you're living in the United States and want us to deposit your pension payment into your U.S. bank account.

To arrange for direct deposit of your pension payment to your U.S. bank account:

  1. Complete the U.S. direct deposit authorization form online
  2. Print and sign the form
  3. Take the form to your bank so it can be verified and signed
  4. Send the form to BC's Public Service Pension Plan

Next steps

Once we have received your form, we will deposit into your account your monthly pension payment in U.S. dollars.

Your first direct deposit will be made about two months after we receive your form. 

Your pension payment may change from month to month because of changes in Canadian and U.S. exchange rates.


If you are a retired member living in the United States, you can send us the U.S. direct deposit authorization form.

Required information

To complete the form you will need:

  • Your bank account information
  • An official signature from your bank


Due to the U.S. National Automated Clearing House Association banking authority rules, if your address contains a PO Box, there may be delay in payment.
