Policy Statement

A payroll advance may be requested in the following circumstances:

  1. When the start date of a new employee causes an excessive financial burden.
  2. In accordance with the contract, an SEIU employee can request an advance due to a vacation.

The advance must be requested in writing, by the employee and approved by the fiscal officer. Please submit the request with the supporting documentation (timesheet and/or copy of a Payroll Authorization) to the Payroll Office.

Final approval rests with Payroll and Controller's Office.

Payroll Advance checks are normally mailed directly to the employee's payroll mailing address unless otherwise specified.

* Please note that there are interest free employee loans available for emergency situations through Human Resources. Please contact the Benefits office at or (603) 646-3588 for more information.
