The state pays the graduate assistant/teaching assistant payroll on a two-week lag basis. This means that after you complete your first two weeks of employment, you receive your paycheck two weeks after that, provided that required new employee paperwork has been completed.
GA/TA paychecks or direct deposit advices are provided to your department and are generally distributed by departmental secretaries. Please check with your department secretary for specific distribution locations within your office area.
There may be several different explanations. Please contact Jonathan Roma in Human Resources at 777-3321 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

To obtain health insurance for your GA TA appointment on the state payroll, you will need to complete a new enrollment form in the Human Resources Office, Couper Administration Bldg. Room 244, Monday - Friday 8:30-4:30.
It takes several weeks, from the time you enroll, to receive your health insurance card. If you need to use your insurance before you receive the card please contact Karen Kocan, 607-777-2042.

Social Security Card
For your dependents:

Proof of Social Security number(s) for all dependents
Proof of date(s) of birth for all dependents
