Payroll’s Dollars & Sense
Director of Payroll Services
We are pleased to announce Jill Dean is the new Director of Payroll Services. Jill has worked at JMU for over thirteen years, most recently as the Technology Manager within the Payroll Services Office.
Mailing Address in MyMadison (Employee Tab)
Payroll Services would like to remind employees to check their mailing address in MyMadison by December 31, under the Employee Tab, to ensure timely delivery of their W-2 document in January. Payroll Services will not mail W-2 documents to mail stop codes, JMU departments, JMU student PO boxes or to the JMU designated zip code of 22807 due to the confidential nature of the information contained in the document. It only takes a minute to verify your address in MyMadison, but it may take the mail up to two weeks to return a W-2 document with an incorrect or invalid address.
NOTE: Student employees may need to update their mailing address under the Employee Tab for payroll purposes and under the Student Tab for other student related year-end documents.
In addition to mailing your 2017 W-2 as we have done in the past, your 2017 W-2 will be available electronically within the Employee Tab in MyMadison. Please note the Employee Social Security Number box on the electronic W-2 will be blank. If you mail your tax return or have someone prepare your tax return on your behalf, you will have to use the W-2 you receive in the mail. W-2’s will be mailed to home addresses no later than January 31. Reissue W-2 requests will be prepared on a weekly basis starting Monday, February 5, 2018.
6-month Employment Break – Direct Deposits
Payroll Services would also like to remind hiring departments that direct deposits are inactivated for anyone who has had a six-month or more break in service. Please keep this in mind, as you rehire employees from year to year. Direct deposit is a condition of employment. If you have any questions regarding direct deposits, you may contact Chris Jones @ x8-3401, our Direct Deposit Coordinator.
Duo Enrollment Deadline Approaching
To all faculty, staff, emeriti, affiliates and student employees:
If you have not yet enrolled in Duo, JMU’s new two-factor authentication service, you are about to lose your opportunity to do so voluntarily. Beginning January 17, when you log in to MyMadison you will be prompted to complete Duo enrollment before you can proceed. To avoid any potential interruption to your work, please make an extra effort to review the enrollment guide and enroll before this deadline. In short, Do Duo Now! Enrollment instructions and more information about the Duo project are available online. If you need additional assistance, contact the IT Help Desk at 540-568-3555, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
