NYS Payroll Services

Paychecks and Distribution

Payday is every other Wednesday. NYS employees are paid on a two-week lag basis: a two-week delay between the time the work is performed and when the salary for that work is received. New employees must wait approximately four weeks to receive their first paycheck. Full-time faculty are usually paid over 26 biweekly payroll periods.

Paychecks are distributed in three different ways: a) available for pick-up in the Student Services Center, b) by direct deposit to an employee's bank or credit union. Forms are available in the Payroll Office, and c) by the department or supervisor. Employees who are unavailable to pick-up checks should make arrangements with the payroll office.
