Payroll Updates: Holiday Schedule 2021

2021 Holiday Payroll Schedule

With Thanksgiving this week, the holiday season is officially in full swing! Unfortunately, that means your payroll processing schedule may be a little wonky for the next few weeks. For example, both Southland Data Processing and the Federal Reserve will be closed in observance of Christmas Day (observed on Friday, December 24) and New Year’s Day (observed on Friday, December 31).

Additionally, Southland Data Processing will be closing early on Friday, December 3rd at 3 PM PT.

Please note that all transfers will be pushed back for check dates of December 24 or December 31 due to the holidays and direct deposits will also not be live for payrolls with these check dates.

December Holiday Payroll Reminders:

  • If your check date is December 24 (Federal Reserve Closed), you will need to move your check date to either Thursday, December 23 or Monday, December 27.
  • If your check date is December 27, you will need to process by 2 PM PT on Wednesday, December 22.
  • Finally, if your check date is Friday, December 31 (Federal Reserve Closed), you will need to move your check date to either Thursday, December 30 or Monday, January 3.
