Commuter Check Direct cutoff date moves to 1st of month
Due to the conversion of nonexempt employees to biweekly pay, UCOP Commuter Services is changing the cutoff date for transit/parking orders with Commuter Check Direct from the fifth to the first of each month.
Effectively immediately, any new parking/transit orders or changes to existing orders must be made by the first day of the month for the following month’s benefit through Commuter Check Direct, UCOP’s provider for commuter benefits.
The change is being made to provide the time needed to process payroll deductions to meet the biweekly payroll deadline.
Be sure to log in to Commuter Check Direct by Sunday, July 1, if you wish to make any changes to your order(s) for the August benefit month. Note that the cutoff will always be 9 p.m. Pacific Time on the first of the month, even if it falls on a weekend. You can find out more about UCOP’s commuter benefit program on the Business Operations website.
If you are moving to a biweekly pay cycle on July 1, you will notice that your monthly commuting expense deduction will be split equally between your two paychecks. If you are on a monthly pay cycle, the full amount will continue to be deducted from your monthly paycheck.
