The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) pays your salary through your preferred bank or Sacco. To receive the monthly salary, the teacher must have a bank or Sacco account. The Commission receives this information once you complete the TSC Bank Form.
When a teacher is hired for the first time, the TSC Bank Form is completed and sent to the head office with other documents. Furthermore, a teacher may change the point at any time.
Procedures on how to change TSC salary pay points
A teacher may wish to change paypoint as often as one may like. For your salary to be diverted to the new bank or savings account, you must:
- First download the TSC Bank Form and Print it.
- Fill in the paypoint form correctly and have it certified by your Principal/ Head Teacher. The TSC County or Sub County Director sign the Principal/ Head Teacher’s bank form.
- Photocopy your new bank/Sacco account plate (ATM Card) both sides. This is the new account where you want your salary to be channeled to. Make sure the copy is clear and must also be certified by your Principal/ Head Teacher.
- Attach your certified bank plate copy and National ID Copy to the completed TSC Bank Form.
- Finally, send the documents to TSC Headquarters (enclosed in one envelope and addressed to the Secretary TSC, P.O Private Bag, Nairobi).
Please do not close your current account until your salary is deposited into the new account. As a result, your pay will be reimbursed. Some teachers who cancelled their old accounts hurriedly were not paid for several months.
If the TSC payroll is closed, you have closed your previous account, and your application for a pay-point change has not been processed, your local bank or Sacco returns the salary to TSC. This lengthy procedure involves a large number of officials.
The floating salary is first returned to the headquarters of the bank, or SACCO. After a thorough review, the bank, or Salco, returns the salary to TSC Head Office. This is done through written checks that take a long time to process.
As a result, the next time you want to change your pay point, you should be patient and not rush to liquidate your existing account. After three to four months, if your pay is being transferred to your bank account without a hitch, you should consider closing the previous account.
