Voluntary deductions are agreed upon deductions from wages that are withheld from an employee’s paycheck. These deductions are initiated by multiple offices across campus; including, but not limited to, Payroll, Benefits, Parking, IMA (Recreational Sports Program), Husky Card, and Gift Account Offices. The only deduction which can be changed by the Payroll Office is a credit union deduction.
Although only one account can be entered for a payroll direct deposit, you may choose the option to have a flat dollar amount deducted and deposited into the following two credit unions:
Note: This deduction option is not available with any other financial institutions
- Washington State Employees Credit Union (Form)
- Inspirus (formerly School Employees Credit Union of Washington) (Form)
To initially set up a credit union deduction:
- Complete the payroll deduction form, found in the links above and contact your credit union directly
To change or stop a credit union deduction:
- Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The University does not manage employee’s credit union accounts.
- If an employee wants their deduction to be allocated between two different accounts such as checking and savings, they must contact their credit union directly and make arrangements.
- To guarantee processing, all payroll related forms and requests must be received no later than 1:00 pm, 6 business days before payday. Any paperwork received after this deadline will be processed only if time is available. Otherwise, it will be processed for the following payday.
