Paycheck Flyers Give Wrong Information on Cashier Office Services

By Jenny Zhang


Contrary to the information on a yellow flyer recently distributed with paychecks, the Cashier’s Office, currently located in 10-180 along the Infinite Corridor, will not be moving on November 15, said Assistant Accounting Officer Cheryl A. Whelan.

Whelan said she still does not know when the Cashier’s Office will move from Building 10 to Building NE49, and she does not know why the flyer incorrectly named Nov. 15 as the date. “When we get notified, we get notified,” she said.

What will happen on the 15th, though, is that the Cashier’s Office’s hours will be shortened. It is currently open from 9 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m and will only be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning on the 15th.

Also contrary to the information on the yellow flyer, the Cashier’s Office will continue to operate on the shortened schedule after the move, rather than resuming longer hours.

According to a sign on the wall of the Cashier’s Office, they will no longer distribute payroll checks and cash checks beginning on the 15th.

The flyer encourages MIT employees who currently pick up their checks from the Cashier’s Office to switch to having them directly deposited into an MIT Federal Credit Union account, because those who do not sign up for direct deposit will soon need to make the longer trek to the Payroll Office in NE49 to pick up their checks.
