The Office of the New York State Comptroller has implemented a new service, NYS PayrollOnline! This new service allows you to:
- Opt out of receiving paper pay statements/direct deposit advices
- View and print your pay statement
- Change your tax withholdings
- View and print current and prior year W-2s
- Update your email address
Accessing this new service is easy! Simply go to: www.suny.edu/hrportal and click on the NYS Payroll Online icon (located in the same area as Time and Attendance and HR Self Service).
The first time you log in you will need the last 4 digits of your SSN and your NYS Employee ID number which may be found on your current pay statement/direct deposit advice. After the initial log in, you can simply follow the above directions to be taken to the site.
We encourage all employees to utilize this new service, especially to help reduce the amount of paper that is generated by a biweekly pay statement/direct deposit advice. If you have any questions on this new service, please contact Payroll at 607-777-2129.
Eligible employees have the option to save on your out-of-pocket health care expenses when you enroll in the NYS Health Care Spending Account (HCSA) and also on your child or dependent care expenses when you enroll in the Dependent Care Advantage Account (DCAA).
The 2019 FSA open enrollment period is October 9 - November 9, 2018, and the deadline is strictly enforced. Keep in mind this is a use-it-or-lose it benefit. Any funds you set aside but do not use by December 31 each plan year will be forfeited.
Current 2018 participants who wish to continue the benefit in 2019 must re-enroll by November 9, 2018. Enroll online or call the FSA customer service hotline at 1-800-358-7202 if you wish to enroll via phone or have questions about the plan.
Human Resources is pleased to introduce the new Flex Spending Account (FSA) called Adoption Advantage Account beginning Jan. 1, 2019. As a result of collective bargaining, eligible CSEA and UUP employees will have the opportunity to set aside pre-tax payroll deductions to pay directly related adoption assistance expenses as defined by IRS guidelines.
Although you will not save FICA on the amount set aside in adoption assistance accounts, you will save federal and state tax (where applicable). Currently the annual IRS contribution limit for pre-tax payroll contributions to an adoption account is $13,810.
The open enrollment period for Adoption Advantage Account participation is Nov. 20 through Dec. 11, 2018 for the 2019 plan year, and the deadline is strictly enforced. For more information and to enroll, visit the FSA website or call customer service at (800) 358-7202. Questions may be directed to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2019 option transfer period for NY State employees is December 10, 2018 through January 18, 2019. If you wish to request a change in coverage during the option period, you must complete a Health Insurance Transaction Form (PS404) and return it to Employee Benefits in AD 242 no later than Friday, January 18.
Plan changes requested during Option Transfer will be effective January 1, 2019. The first pay check the new rate will apply to is December 27, 2018.
No action is required if you do not wish to change your health plan for 2019. However, if you are eligible to continue participation in NYSHIP Opt Out (CSEA, MC, NYSCOPBA, PBA-NYS & PEF are eligible), re-enrollment is required by submitting a completed PS 404 and Opt Out Attestation Form (PS 409) by January 18 to participate in Opt Out 2019.
The 2019 bi-weekly health insurance rates are available online:
