  • Bank Account Information for Direct Deposit
    • If you would like your monthly IAS payment directly deposited into a bank account, you may use an existing U.S. account, or open one locally. Members will provide their bank information to the Comptroller’s Office via AdobeSign, accompanied by either a blank voided check or something official from the bank indicating the routing and account numbers.  ***We cannot accept U.S. bank account and routing numbers in a handwritten note, or by quoting it in an email. You must provide something “official” from your bank, such as a blank voided check, a bank statement showing your bank information, or a “direct deposit” form provided by your bank.
    • If you need to open an account, many members choose PNC Bank, located at 76 Nassau Street and Palmer Square in Princeton. This branch has a relationship with IAS, is familiar with IAS Members, and offers free checking for direct deposit accounts.  Though you are welcome to stop by at any time during regular business hours, IAS members will have the best banking experience by first contacting Nadya Peudova to schedule an appointment.  Nadya can either be reached by email (preferable), , or by telephone at 609-497-6721. The IAS shuttle makes stops at this location daily. If you do not yet have a Social Security Number, you may still open an account with PNC Bank; you will be required to provide that number to the them once you receive it

If providing documentation electronically, please email the receipts to If submitting documentation in hard copy, receipts should be taped to 8-1/2 x 11 sheets of paper and returned to the Comptroller’s Office via interoffice mail, or may be left in the Drop Box outside the ECP building.
