CSEA Longevity Lump Sum Payments for Employees on the October Cycle
The payment amount will be $1250 for individuals that have 5 or more years of continuous service at a base annual salary equal to the job rate for the employee’s grade. The payment amount will be $2500 for individuals that have 10 or more years of continuous service at a base annual salary equal to the job rate for the employee’s grade.
CSEA employees who wish to change their tax withholdings for the 10/17/18 check, may choose from two options to do so:
1) Submit tax changes online by utilizing the self-service portal, NYS Payroll Online (see link below). Online changes in allowances for the 10/17/18 check can be made 9/27/18 through 10/5/18. Employees will be responsible for changing their allowances back to their normal status between the dates of 10/11/18 through 10/19/18 for the 10/31/18 check.
2) Submit paper tax forms to the Payroll Office no later than 10/1/18. If you decide to change your taxes please indicate at the top of the tax forms, “For Check Date 10/17/18 Payment Only”. Completed paper tax forms must be turned into the Payroll Office no later than 10/1/18.
Please note that the longevity payment will be a separate check and will already be taxed appropriately based on your current tax withholding.
