Please be advised that due to severe weather, the US Postal Service cancelled postal service in many areas of the country for two days. Therefore, members may see a delay in the receipt of mailed checks/stubs. 

Note: 1099's for 2018 have been mailed. Members can view and print the 1099's from the Paylocity website.

* RSCD’s new payroll system provides retiree’s with a self-service portal called Web Pay. Retiree's can update address information, view pay stubs, update direct deposit information. Click here to view directions on how to access the new features. 

* Your June 1, 2018 pension check and stub will have a different look due to the changing of check processing companies.   You may also see an increase or decrease in the amount of tax withholding on your check.  This may be due to the combing of multiple checks into one payment and/or a change in state tax tables.  Contact RSCD if you would like to adjust your tax withholding.
