Payroll’s Dollars & Sense
We are pleased to announce Faith Meadows as Payroll’s Technology Manager. Faith comes to us from JMU’s Accounts Payable office and we’re happy to have her on board.
Summer School Is Quickly Approaching…
For faculty wishing to make tax withholding adjustments for their summer pay, please reference Payroll Service’s summer school calendars under the “Calendars and Deadlines” link on the left sidebar of their web-page @ www.jmu.edu/payroll.
There are two calendars available... a “guaranteed” course calendar and a “contingency” course calendar. Note: A contingency course that “makes” is still considered a contingency course for the purpose of determining your scheduled pay dates.
In order for Payroll Services to assist with the calculations, faculty must provide the following information…
- The session(s) being taught (i.e. 1st 4 wks, 2nd 6 wks, etc…)
- The actual pay dates the payments are schedule to pay out
- The exact amount expected
- Your PeopleSoft Employee ID Number, or the last four digits of your SSN.
For payroll assistance, please contact Chris Jones (jones5cm), Jessica Hensley (henslejg), or Sherry Willis (willissl).
In an effort to “Go Green”, all adjustments must be made electronically via MyMadison. There is a “DD and W-4/VA-4 Effective Date Table” calendar located under their “Calendars and Deadlines” link as well. This calendar will identify when changes must be made via MyMadison in order for the change to be effective for a particular pay date.
Who Needs a Paycheck Checkup?
The IRS always recommends employees check their withholding at the beginning of each year or when their personal circumstances change to make sure they’re having the right amount of tax withheld from their paychecks. With the new tax law changes, it’s especially important for people to use the Withholding Calculator on IRS.gov, or speak with their tax advisor, to make sure they have the right amount of withholding. Having too little tax withheld can mean an unexpected tax bill or penalty at tax time next year.
The Latest About Using JMU’s New Duo Service
The Duo self-enrollment period has ended. If you have not already enrolled in Duo you will NOT be able to access MyMadison or other applications now protected by Duo.
Based on recent feedback, use of Duo for additional systems has been delayed until May 9. On that date, in addition to MyMadison and the JMU SSL VPN, Duo will be necessary to log in to other systems that use a JMU e-ID and password. These include heavily-used systems such as Canvas, WebEx, digital library resources, JobLink, PositionLink, Chrome River, eVA, and others. For a complete list, see http://www.jmu.edu/computing/accountspasswords/services-protected-by-duo.shtml.
Since you will be using Duo more often, make it a habit to keep your Duo-enrolled device with you.

JMU Telecommunications Rolls Out “Stutter Dial Tone” feature,
Beginning May 8-July 31, 2018
No longer will you have to wonder if your Single Line Phone has a Voicemail Message!
Stutter Dial Tone, for analog Single Line telephones, is a rapidly interrupted dial tone used to serve as a voicemail message-waiting indicator for analog single line telephones.
If you have an analog line (single line phone) and you receive a stutter dial tone when lifting up your handset, please dial 8-4411 to access voicemail and retrieve your message. The stutter dial tone will only sound off for the first three seconds after lifting your handset.
This feature only applies to analog single line telephone users. Digital Telephone (D-Term) users are not affected. D-Term telephones will continue to receive the message waiting light indication for voicemail and will not receive stutter dial tone.
