I've lost my check! What do I do to get it replaced?
If a check is lost, destroyed, or stolen, it should be reported to the Payroll Department. The Payroll Department will place a stop payment upon the check in question. There is a $20.00 stop payment fee. Once payroll receives confirmation that the check has not been cashed, a replacement check will be issued. This process can take up to 48 hours to complete.
