Reminder – Warrant Pickup Availability Nov. 24

The Comptroller’s office will be closed for business on Wednesday, Nov. 24; however, Payment Services will distribute warrants from 8-10 a.m. for the Nov. 23 processing cycle. There will be no warrant distribution on Nov. 25 or 26.

See Payment Distribution for warrant pickup requirements.

Reminder – Direct Deposit Settlement Dates

State and federal holidays with no scheduled USAS cycle that are listed on the System Outages and Holidays calendar are excluded when determining the direct deposit settlement date of a payment.

Since financial institutions are closed, no direct deposit activity occurs on those days. Agencies must exclude these dates when determining when to process their payments to ensure prompt payment and avoid late payment interest.

Reminder – USAS/TINS File Submission

If you need to submit a USAS or TINS batch file on a weekend or holiday, see the USAS/TINS Input Record File Submission Schedule.
