SSRA pays monthly by Direct Deposit.

Payments are made by the last day of the month, although we try to pay the third Wednesday of the month for the games worked the month before. In other words, games worked for the Seattle Chapter in September will get paid in October. This is because we do the billing once a month. We bill the clubs and leagues for the services performed the previous month, usually by the end of the first week of the month. By the time they remit payment to SSRA, there is just enough time to initiate Direct Deposit (which takes three business days) and get the referees paid.

TO ENTER YOUR BANK INFORMATION: Log in to On the left navigation bar is Services. Click on that and you will see a link to Profile. Click on that, and you will see Banking. When you click on the banking tab, you will see blank areas in which to put in your banking information and social security number which is needed for the IRS. SSRA does not have access to your password or SSN. Updating your banking information by clicking the update button will create a Direct Deposit request which goes to the Accounting Secretary.

IF YOUR BANK IS NOT LISTED: Email Mike Echert at and tell him your Bank and Routing number. He will add the bank. After he adds your bank, you can add your account number in your profile.

DIRECT DEPOSIT REQUESTS FOR A NEW ACCOUNT OR CHANGE OF BANKS WILL SHOW AS A REQUEST IN YOUR PROFILE UNTIL YOUR FIRST DEPOSIT AS A NEW REFEREE, OR YOUR NEXT DEPOSIT IF YOU HAVE CHANGED BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS. At the time payroll is generated by the Accounting Secretary (which is done monthly), the information is put into the profile and activated. Remember, you will see your bank request as a request until this is done. PLEASE DO NOT USE DEBIT CARD ACCOUNT NUMBERS. Refer to a check or bank statement for your account number.

SSRA is charged a $7 fee if you provide an incorrect bank account number. So please be careful when entering the information in your profile. The site is secure and all information is private.

SSRA no longer issues checks for referee payments.
