Additional Pay

Additional Pay Form

The Additional Pay (Add Pay) process is used to pay income to an employee outside of/in addition to their routine payroll amount. An Add Pay request can result in an extra amount in the employee's paycheck for reasons such as work done outside of one’s regular job assignment or reimbursement for relocation. Or, the request can result in only a record of income (no check required) for tax reporting purposes in situations when the income was already paid, such as in the form of a gift or payment of a moving company’s invoice on the employee’s behalf.
