Guam - It was a late payday for over 400 Department of Education employees as a result of a delay in the direct deposit of their paychecks last week.
The 4th of July federal holiday inadvertently impacted certain participating banks that rely on a third party to facilitate their deposits and credit employee accounts.
DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez apologizes for the delay and assures the necessary fixes are being made to prevent such issues in the future. He notes that doe has only implemented direct deposit since last fall.
If you are a DOE employee receiving direct deposit via your USAA and Bank of Hawaii accounts, you should have received your paycheck by Friday 5pm, Coast 360 on 7am Saturday morning, Naval Federal Credit Union on noon Saturday, and ANZ users this morning.
