Salary, Sick Leave & Disability Reimbursements (2 steps)

Reimbursements of salary or sick leave / disability can involve complex tax issues (made even more complex if they cross calendar years). As a result, they should be corrected immediately upon discovery of the overpayment.

step 1

First submit a HelpSU Request for assistance in calculating the appropriate repayment amount, net of taxes and benefits, using:

  • Request Category: Financial Support
  • Request Type: Payroll
Note 1:  For student salary repayments, be sure to also correct the necessary line(s) in GFS.

Note 2:  Salary repayments can also occur when Stanford faculty visit another University for an extended period of time, but stay on Stanford's payroll. Stanford bills the other University for the amount of the faculty member's salary and benefits. Any such reimbursement checks should be sent to Payroll.
step 2

After receiving the correct repayment amount, deliver the reimbursement check to the Payroll Office with a memo indicating the relevant employee ID number and PTA to be credited.

Note:  For continuing employees, you can also make arrangements with Payroll to deduct the overpayment from future paychecks. See How To: Adjust for Employee Overpayment.

Graduate Stipend (Student Aid) Overpayments (2 steps)

step 1

In the case of graduate stipend (student aid) overpayments, the appropriate student services representative should process a correcting transaction in the Graduate Financial Support (GFS) Module prior to receipt of any repayment.

step 2

Once the correcting GFS transaction is reflected on the appropriate student's bill, any repayment check should be taken to the Student Services Center (SSC) and applied directly to the student's account.

Note:  For postdoc stipend overpayments, see the above section on Salary, Sick Leave & Disability Reimbursements.
