Changes to Metrochek Benefit
Employees who receive the Metrochek transit benefit and use their Metrochek cards either as Metrorail farecards or exchange them for Metrobus tokens can now participate in a new program that is being offered by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA): SmartBenefits.
SmartBenefits is the "digital" way to receive a Metrochek transit benefit. Instead of receiving paper Metrochek cards, you can electronically download the dollar value of your Metrochek benefit onto your WMATA registered SmarTrip card account on the first business day of the month. More information on this new benefit is available at http://humanresources.cua.edu/announcements/.
For more information, call Renell Lewis at 202-319-6445.
Year-End Payroll Information
As the end of 2006 approaches, help the payroll department by turning in all timesheets and leave reports by the due date. The payroll department will not have time to process pay if timesheets or other documents are submitted late. Note that no off-cycle checks will be disbursed for late timesheets, late hiring forms or retroactive pay. Timesheets are due by noon on Dec. 15. November leave reports are due Dec. 5.
Documentation for any employment activity must be submitted to the Office of Human Resources, signed by the cognizant vice president, at least 14 days prior to the effective date to allow time for the departments in the approval cycle to complete their review and return the forms to the human resources office.
Did you move this year? To receive 2006 Form W-2s in a timely manner, submit address changes by filling out the top half of the Employee Data Form and sending it to the Office of Human Resources in Leahy 107. The form is available at http://humanresources.cua.edu/forms/employeedata.doc. No additional signatures are required for an address change.
