Health Insurance If a transaction is received from the Department of Civil Service for a health insurance deduction, the transaction will be processed and the deduction will be taken from the employee’s check.
Agency Actions

When a return from leave of absence or a rehire transaction is processed, the agency must verify the employee’s deductions on the general deduction panel and also verify the employee’s retirement data on the retirement  panel.  OSC is not making any changes to data on the retirement panel.

For ANY changes to an employee’s job record, agencies must verify the general deduction and retirement panels and cancel or initiate appropriate information.

Also, it is the agencies responsibility to verify the employee’s direct deposit record is still accurate.

Questions Questions should be directed to your auditor.
