Why Direct Deposit?
You get immediate access to your money on the morning of pay day. So if you're away on vacation or on business, you can still draw on your paycheck at an ATM or by check.
Time equals Money
Not only will you save trips to the bank, you'll save money too. Many banks offer reduced fees for customers with direct deposit. Check with your bank to find out how much you could be saving.
The process is simple. Carnegie Mellon notifies your financial institution electronically that a specified amount of money should be deposited in the account you designate. You receive an earnings statement from Carnegie Mellon when your payroll deposit is made. This statement indicates the amount of money deposited into your account, the date, gross pay, deductions, taxes etc.
Request Direct Deposit
Simply log into Workday and follow these instructions.
Qatar employees should contact the CMUWorks Service Center.
What is a garnishment?
A garnishment is a legal order to withhold a specified sum of money from your wages to satisfy a debt in accordance with the federal wage garnishment law.
What is a Levy?
A Levy, Earnings Withholding Order or a Wage Assignment is the legal terminology for a garnishment.
What is the difference between those terms?
Different agencies use different terminology for the garnishment. The Sheriff's Department uses the term Wage Assignment. The Federal Government calls it a Levy and the State refers to it as a Earnings Withholding Order. The child support agencies, District Attorney and Family Support Divisions, call it a wage assignment.
How much can you take from my checks?
Carnegie Mellon University is required to deduct a portion of your salary earned from your future paychecks - it could be as much as 50% or higher in some instances.
Can I have Carnegie Mellon reduce the amount taken?
No. This matter is between you and the taxing agency or firm/person named as plaintiff in the order. Only the issuer of the garnishment has legal authority to modify or release your levy. You may wish to consult your attorney.
Will the garnishment amount be deducted from my net pay?
It depends upon the type of garnishment. For example, a Federal Levy will exempt a predetermined amount of your net pay from levy. Otherwise, the deduction is taken from your "Disposable earnings"
Are garnishments taken from every pay?
Carnegie Mellon University is required to deduct from each pay.
Can I skip a deduction?
No. You must contact the appropriate agency or an attorney to get a delay or to work out a different payment arrangement.
How can I have the garnishment stopped?
We must have a written release five days prior to payday in order to stop your deduction.
