Final Paycheck - Leaving the University

What happens to my final paycheck when I leave the University?

As the Payroll department is processing your termination, you may receive an email indicating that there has been a change made to your direct deposit information. The email is being sent to inform you that the Payroll department will be terminating your direct deposit information after your final check.

Your final paycheck will be handled based on your type of separation from the University:

Retired

Your final paycheck will be handled exactly the same way as your previous paychecks. If you were receiving your pay via direct deposit, you will still receive a direct deposit. If you were receiving your pay via a paper check, you will still receive a paper check that will be delivered to your department.

Voluntary Termination

Your final paycheck will be handled exactly the same way as your previous paychecks. If you were receiving your pay via direct deposit, you will still receive a direct deposit. If you were receiving your pay via a paper check, you will still receive a paper check that will be delivered to your department.

Involuntary Termination

Depending on your separation date, the Payroll department will either process your pay exactly the same way as your previous paychecks, or the Payroll department will contact you by phone or email to ask how you would like to receive your final payment. Refer to the UA policy on Termination for more information.
