Employees receiving a paycheck:
Can have the check mailed to their home or under special conditions, can elect to pick up checks at the payroll office. Checks returned to the payroll office by the Post Office will be held for pickup by the employee.
Lost, damaged, or expired paychecks:
If a payroll check is lost, damaged or expired (not cashed within 90 days) employees must notify the payroll office. Once payroll has verified that the check has not been replaced or presented for payment, a stop payment will be submitted to the bank and a replacement check will be issued within 24 to 48 hours after stop payment is completed.
SDSU Research Foundation will make several attempts to contact the employee, but is required by law to send unclaimed paycheck records and amounts that are one year or older to the appropriate state government. This time period may vary depending on the state the employee resides in. It is the employee’s responsibility to keep their address up to date and contact the payroll office regarding any unclaimed paychecks.
Employees who have outstanding unclaimed paychecks may contact the “Unclaimed Property” website applicable to your state.
