Winter Break and Holiday Closure Schedule

Dear Colleagues:

As our Winter Break is fast approaching Payroll Services would like to remind all those who have not signed up for Direct Deposit to do so as soon as possible.  A reminder that Universal Direct Deposit was put in place January of 2016. Please see the Mini-Manual online, which can assist you in creating your own direct deposit in People Soft. Please refer to page 11.

Additionally we would like to share the payroll schedule for the month of December. We encourage all colleges and departments to pay special attention to the deadlines for December to ensure that all paperwork will be received and processed timely for the end of the calendar year. Please find below a link to paperwork deadlines.

All paper checks are delivered to Payroll Services, Waterman 237 until the employee’s direct deposit is active.

We will be open the final week before Winter Break, Monday, December 18, 2017 through Thursday, December 21, 2017 from 8am-12:30pm and 1:30pm to 4:30pm. We will be closed Friday, December 22, 2017 through Monday, January 1, 2018 for the Winter Break. We will reopen Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at 8am.

Bi-Weekly Payroll paper checks for 12/22/2017 issue date can be picked up 12/21/17 but cannot be cashed or deposited until 12/22/17. For those receiving direct deposit, this will occur on 12/22/17.

Semi-Monthly Payroll paper checks for 12/29/17 can be picked up 12/21/17 but cannot be cashed or deposited until 12/29/17. For those receiving direct deposit, this will occur on 12/29/2017.

An additional annual reminder to review your W-4 elections, home address and to sign up to receive your W-2 electronically in People Soft Self Service during early December. You will receive your W-2-year end tax information more quickly and securely if you consent to receive your W-2 electronically.

Thank you.
