New Payroll Check Design Coming Soon!
August 3, 2017
The Payroll Department will soon be issuing a different kind of check for those employees who do not receive direct deposit. Please be aware of this change if you are looking for a check in the mail or are concerned that the new check might not be valid.
The new checks will look slightly different than the current version but will contain all the same information. They will be printed on standard-sized check stock and will be mailed in window envelopes rather than the self-sealing forms with perforated edges that are currently used.
While we are in the process of rolling out this new check design, employees may see both the new checks and the old checks being issued. Both designs will be valid during this short transition.
An example of the new payroll check, which has been masked to exclude all confidential and financial information, is shown below.
Of course, we encourage all employees to participate in direct deposit, the easy way to make sure your pay is in your bank account on pay day. To sign up for direct deposit, please submit a direct deposit form [PDF] to the Payroll Department for processing. Direct deposit instructions and directions for submitting your form to Payroll using AskDrexel [PDF] are available on our website.
