  • There is a Finance - Payroll Services Representative assigned to each department and they are available for consultations regarding payroll and Kronos transactions.
  • Employees with questions regarding recorded and paid time should work with thier manager, who will contact Payroll Services if required.
  • Finance - Payroll Services - Processing Center is located at 1902 Harborside Drive.

Distribution of Payroll

  • The safest, fastest and most convenient way to receive your payroll check is to sign up for direct deposit.
  • Employees choosing to have a printed check will receive their check via the US Mail. Biweekly paid employees' checks will be mailed on Wednesday of Pay Week and monthly paid employees will receive checks in the mail prior to the first day of the month. Using Employee Self Service, please validate that we have your correct home address, as this is the address used for the purpose of mailing checks.
  • All employees may view their check on line using Employee Self Service and may print out the PDF version of the check(s) from this page.

Direct Deposit Changes

  • Why Direct Deposit?:
    • CONTROL - Using Employee Self Service employees may make on line changes to their own direct deposit forms. No paper work involved!
    • MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS - Employees are allowed to establish up to 4 different accounts in which to deposit their paycheck.
    • CONVENIENCE - No more long bank lines on payday.
    • SECURITY - During disaster situations, employees would be assured their money is deposited safely into their account(s). There is no need to worry about lost, stolen, forged, or damaged checks.
    • SPEED - Your pay is deposited on the actual payday. All financial institutions differ in deposit procedures. Please check with your financial institution to confirm their process.
    • EXPANDED RANGE - Direct Deposit is also available for out of state financial institutions.
