A Payroll encumbrance is an estimate of the salary and benefit expenses of a position for the remainder of the fiscal year and is encumbered on the account(s) based on the position distribution set up. Payroll encumbrances are created through MSS (Manager Self Service) and are posted to UAccess Financials at the beginning of every fiscal year and updated daily unless otherwise noted on the UBET calendar.
