Guam - The Department of Administration is addressing complaints over possible late payments for payroll deductions for a number of Government of Guam employees. Director Benita Manglona says while payroll deductions are mailed to the post office, they are working with its programmer to further eliminate any problem.
"It's just a few employees so I want to assure those employees that we always remit the payroll deductions on a timely manner, and we are doing something to ensure that we eliminate the mail factor that there could be delays in that area so we are going through the automatic transfers to the bank," she explained to KUAM News.
Manglona says Pentagon Federal Credit Union is the only financial institution she is aware of in which GovGuam workers may have encountered problems. She could not provide how many workers may have been affected but says this is an isolated incident. DOA's Accounting Division tells KUAM News that about 100 GovGuam workers have payroll deductions to PenFed.
PenFed officials have yet to respond to KUAM's inquiries but according to the DOA's Accounting Division, PenFed had called DOA over two payroll deductions that have yet to be posted because of a lack of manpower with the credit union.
