  40. Auto Deposits Not Pre Noting Syl Luhring

  41. Auto Deposits Not Pre Noting • Legislative action – LB533 • Legislature has removed the restrictions on requiring Auto Deposits. • Effective 90 days after end of session. • Mandatory Auto deposit – No exceptions • Beginning with the payment of the September 30th monthly payroll and the bi-weekly payment on September 23rd (B-19 ending on September 13th) all payroll payments will be deposited electronically to a pay card or to an account at the employee’s financial institution instead of issuing warrants. • Employees not choosing between the pay card or other financial institution account will automatically be given a pay card account. 41

  42. Auto Deposits Not Pre Noting • Interims • Starting June 1st, we will begin using electronic payments instead of issuing warrants for payment. • Employees with a deposit account in place will have the interim payment deposited. Employees without an account and receiving an interim payment will be advised that by September 14th, electronic deposits will be mandatory in most cases • Pre-Notes • Avoid pre-noting - creates need for warrant • Check for accuracy of account information at setup. • All or nothing – between now and September, there should be no mixture of warrants and auto deposits. All accounts with direct deposit accounts established MUST use direct deposit for the entire payment and not a warrant for part. 42

  43. Auto Deposits Not Pre Noting Notice sent to warrant Recipients • $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Important – Please Read $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ • You currently are receiving your pay by a warrant. Payroll warrants will cease beginning with the pay period starting September 14, 2009. By that date, you must select one of two payroll direct deposit options. You can have your pay directly deposited to a payroll card, which is a prepaid Visa card. You do not need a banking relationship to utilize the payroll card. If you have a checking, savings or money market account with any bank or credit union, you can direct deposit your pay to one or more of your accounts. There are a number of benefits of using direct deposit. Your pay is deposited to your account(s) or payroll card each payday and the full amount is available for immediate use or withdrawal. You will never have to worry about losing your pay checks. Please contact a human resources or payroll person in your agency and you will be assisted in setting up your direct deposit.

  44. Auto Deposits Not Pre Noting • Expense Check payments • Will be auto deposit just like payroll and interims and subject to the September 14th mandate. Refer to Dee Ward’s presentation during the last PHRUG meeting for procedures when setting up these reimbursements. 44
