Paychecks will be distributed from the Payroll Office on paydays as soon as the checks have been counted, sorted, and recorded in accordance with New York State Department of Audit and Control Procedures. Distribution of paychecks varies from department to department on campus. Employees should check with their supervisors regarding the proper procedures for receiving their paychecks.
There are a variety of deductions which may be withheld from paychecks. Some deductions are mandatory, such as State and Federal income taxes, Social Security taxes and Medicare, agency shop fees, and Tier III or IV Retirement System contributions Other deductions are voluntary; such as insurance premiums, savings bonds, credit union, deferred compensation, tax deferred annuities, or dependent care advantage account deductions. Paychecks are also subject to garnishments or liens made according to court order or law.
Each paycheck is accompanied by a paycheck stub which shows the amount of biweekly salary and describes deductions. Periodic, if not biweekly, monitoring of check stubs is important to ensure that proper deductions are being made.
