Payroll Updates: Memorial Day 2019

memorial day payroll reminder

On Monday, May 27, we will celebrate Memorial Day in honor of all the brave men and women who have died while defending our country. As we prepare to remember our heroes, Southland Data Processing would like to remind you that since Memorial Day is also a banking holiday, you may need to do some additional payroll prep next week.

Both Southland Data Processing and the Federal Reserve will be closed on May 27th in observance of Memorial Day. Because of this, transfers will be pushed back a day for check dates on or after the holiday. Direct deposits will also not be live for payrolls with check dates on May 27th.

For your employees to receive their pay by May 27th, you should:

  • Change your check date to Friday, May 24th
  • Send your payroll by 2:00 PM PDT on Wednesday, May 22nd

Other affected check dates that will need to submit early:

  • Checks dated Tuesday, May 28th – send payroll by 2:00 PM PDT on Thursday, May 23rd
  • Checks dated Wednesday, May 29th – send payroll by 2:00 PM PDT on Friday, May 24th

We recommend you always check the Transfers section on your Payroll Summary report, which has the exact transfer amounts and dates.

As always, our team is here to help with any questions you have about your payroll or check dates. We’ll always pick up the phone, so don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions.

Wishing you and yours an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend, full of reflection and gratitude.
