In preparation for the upgrade to PayServ 9.1, the Bureau of State Payroll Services performed a comprehensive analysis of garnishment processing in the system. This review has resulted in significant changes to the way garnishments are processed in PayServ. New/revised fields can be found on the garnishment screens, garnishment types have been updated and garnishment priorities have been reassigned.
These changes may result in changes to some employees’ net pay. OSC has prepared a letter to be sent to all employees who currently have multiple garnishments explaining that they may see a change to their net pay as a result of the priority reassignment. While some employees may see an increase in net pay, others could see a decrease.
These net pay changes may increase the number of garnishment related phone calls received by agency payroll staff. In order to assist agencies in answering these questions, this bulletin contains updated screenshots of all garnishment pages accessible by users with the view garnishment security authorization, and defines the new garnishment types and priorities.
