Are checks mailed home during the pre-notification period before a direct deposit election takes effect?
Setting up direct deposit may take up to one month and is subject to the payroll calendar. In some cases, a pay date may occur before a direct deposit is set up. In the event that this happens, the employees without direct deposit will receive their pay as a paper pay check mailed to their home address on file. If you make changes to an existing direct deposit account and a pay date occurs before the new/additional account is set up, you will continue to receive your pay via your original direct deposit account until the change takes effect.
For new hires, Home address MUST be home address. It cannot be a work address.
There will be no changes to pay dates. Pay dates will remain the same for both monthly and bi-weekly employees.
Yes, after go-live, you can elect up to three (3) Direct Deposit accounts at different financial institutions.
Once UCPath goes live and employees have access to the UCPath Portal, you will be able to set up additional direct deposit accounts.
What will happen to my Fidelity deductions, or 430(b) loan repayment deductions when UCPath goes live?
These deductions will transfer automatically to UCPath.
Garnishments and court orders will be processed through the UCPath Center. Employees should call the UCPath Center directly should they have questions about garnishments.
For the first six months after going live, employees should contact the ANR Hypercare Team to resolve any errors with their pay checks.
Employees should contact the UCPath Center if paper paychecks are not received after 5 days from the mailing date. The UCPath Center may place a stop on the check and reissue where appropriate.
Currently, when we hire new students or employees, there if often a delay before their direct deposit activates. This is due to the pre-notification period. Will that continue to be the case?
Yes, the pre-notification period will remain in place. New employees will receive a paper check mailed to their home address until the direct deposit is set up
Is the change in pay that may result from the new, industry-standard calculations in UCPath going to be an increase or a decrease?
UCPath uses industry standard calculations. These calculations employ a rounding model that is slightly different then that used in the current Personnel and Payroll System (PPS). While both are accurate models for calculating pay, there may be very small changes resulting in a slight difference in the calculations of taxes, voluntary deductions and flexible spending amounts. This could result in a very small, if any, increase or decrease in net pay calculations.
UCPath uses industry-standard calculations that are more modern and accurate than PPS (our former payroll system). Gross and net income totals, tax withholdings, and benefit deductions may vary slightly in amount due to calculation differences between PPS and UCPath. Read more about UCPath calculation differences.
