UCPath Payroll Questions

UCPath Payroll Questions

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 via deposit account or adding an additional 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.

How will I get my W2s for 2019?

You will receive two W2s in 2019. One for earnings after UCPath goes live and the other for wages earned before the UCPath go-live date. The first will be available in AYSO, while the latter, for wages earned post go-live, will be available in the UCPath Portal. Your designated W-2 delivery option in AYSO will transfer over into UCPath (i.e., mail or online option).

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.

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.
