7.3. Stop payment information
- A “stop payment” can be placed on a check. Because ADP charges a fee to place a stop on a check, Payroll recommends you wait at least 7-10 business days to see if you receive the check or if the check is returned to MI by the post office. If a check is returned to MI as undeliverable, it can be re-mailed with a corrected address on it and no fee is involved.
- If you wish to place a stop on a check, Payroll will need the pay period/pay date, correct mailing address, check #, and check amount, which you can view in ADP. To view your paystubs, follow the directions given in Chapter 7.2. of this Knowledge Book.
- If you request a stop on a check, please keep the following in mind:
- Depending on the reason for the stop, you may be responsible for the stop check fee.
- If you request a stop on a check, it takes 7 to 10 business days before Payroll is notified by ADP that they can reissue the check.
- If you then receive the check during the 7 to 10 business day timeframe, it would no longer be cashable.
- Once ADP approves funds being reissued, the funds are generally re-issued on the next pay date.
- Reissued checks may be live paper checks that will be sent via US mail, or they may be direct deposited, if your direct deposit has been verified by ADP in time for the pay date when the funds are reissued.
