Payroll Updates: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday 2019

On Monday, January 21st, the Federal Reserve Bank will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday. Although Southland Data Processing will be open, 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 January 21st.

We recommend you always check the Transfers section on your Payroll Summary report, which has the exact transfer amounts and dates. You can also contact your Customer Service Rep who can provide you with this information.

In order for your employees to receive their pay by January 21st, you should:
  • Change your check date to Friday, January 18th
  • Send your payroll by 2:00 PM PST on Wednesday, January 16th
For other check dates, you may need to send your payroll a day earlier than usual, as described below:
  • Checks dated Tuesday, January 22nd – send payroll by 2:00 PM PST on Thursday, January 17th
  • Checks dated Wednesday, January 23rd – send payroll by 2:00 PM PST on Friday, January 18th

As always, our team is here to help you with any issues with 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 a day of reflection, love, and forgiveness as we remember the powerful contributions of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Holiday, Payroll
