Payroll   Electronic Delivery of Payroll Advice

The Payroll Department is ready to launch a new electronic delivery of payroll advices. As you may know, a payroll advice is the form we send out each payroll to employees who have direct deposit and it lists their gross pay, net pay, taxes, deductions and their accrued leave balances. The program runs during payroll processing, and directs an employee’s payroll advices to be emailed to the employee at their personal email address rather than printed and delivered to the employee’s work location on Friday.   This means that you can have your payroll advice emailed to you, rather than receiving the paper copy through interoffice mail!

This program is voluntary and provides several advantages to the City of Springfield, Springfield Public Schools, and all employees: pay advices are emailed as they are processed, and employees receive the message a day or two before funds are deposited in their account; less paper is used in the payroll process, reducing material and printing costs making this a “green” initiative; fewer trips to remote sites are necessary to deliver pay advices; the pay advices remain available to you while traveling or on a day off-you don’t have to be at work to receive them; no more lost or misplaced payroll advices; pay advices can be filed in personal email accounts for easy retrieval. The email can be viewed on most smart phones and is password protected. To open the file, you need the last four digits of your Social Security Number.

If you are a current employee and are interested in registering, send an email to We will need to know your Name, Employee ID#, and the email address to which you would like the electronic advice delivered. A confirmation email will be sent to you once your information is set up. Finally, if you don’t already have direct deposit you can enroll by completing the attached form (in its entirety and returning it the address at the bottom of the form) which will let you take advantage of this new program.

This applies when you receive a Bachelor's Degree


You must send the appropriate forms and documents to the Human Resources Department by September 20th or February 20th of each school year.  Any incomplete submissions will be returned to you.  If you do not resend a complete submission by the deadline, you will need to reapply for the next deadline.
