Pay adjustments

Employees are responsible for verifying the accuracy of their paychecks and taxes each payday. 


Occasionally, employees may be paid more than is due. If an overpayment is discovered, CU will collect funds according to the Employee Services Overpayment Procedure.  

If you discover an overpayment, contact your payroll department immediately to avoid tax implications.
