Summary :  checks mail or delivered to different locations


Primary Information

    OFF CYCLE CHECKS- Contact TSS to arrange pick up or delivery.

    FIRST check the attached lists to see if you work for a Department for which checks are sent directly (MEDFORD Dining and Building & Grounds/Facilities checks are PICKED UP at TSS and distributed to each of the different Dining establishments or Building & Grounds/Facilities locations by the Department ).  If your Department is on the list, disregard the rest of the information (below), and check with your Department for the check.

    Checks are sent to these locations:

    If you are paid Weekly/Hourly/Non-Exempt:

    -  Staff, Faculty, Temps, non-Tufts students:  mailed to home address (not mailing address) unless out of state, in which case it is mailed to the department.
    -  Students***:  sent to Posner Hall (Bursar-Boston 617-636-6551), Dowling Hall (Student Services- Medford 617-627-2000) or Administrative Services Building (Grafton TSS  617-627-7000) or SMFA 230 Fenway- (Colin Buckley -617-369-3574). This is for both in state and out of state addresses.

    If you are paid Semi-Monthly/Salaried/Exempt:

    -  All- Faculty, Staff, non-Tufts Students, and Students are mailed to the home address (not mailing address) unless it is out of state in which case it goes to the department.  Note:  for those out of state but close to MA (such as Salem NH) the check may go to the department.  It is best to call and inquire.

    Travel Checks for non-employees are sent to whatever address is listed on the travel or business expense form.

    Note: The first paper check received should be deposited with a bank teller or at branch ATM. There is a possible error message, "insufficient funds", you may receive when trying to use a mobile deposit app or an ATM machine not located at a branch. 

    For those students who are paid on a Weekly basis and are working on the Medford Campus, pay checks must be picked up in person at the front desk of the Student Service Center located on the 7th floor of Dowling Hall, 419 Boston Avenue, daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Checks are interoffice mailed to Dowling and are usually available in the afternoons. Student Services will generally email the student when the check is ready for pick up. Students picking up their checks must present a valid photo ID. Students may not pick up checks for other students except in cases of emergency, in which case the Student Employment Office (SEO) must be notified in advance and the situation approved by the Manager of Student Employment. The student picking up the check or pay stub must present a signed note, which authorizes him/her to receive the check, along with a photo ID. If students fail to pick up their checks after 30 days the checks are sent to the SEO. The Student Employment Manager e-mails the students to inform them that their check will be returned to Tufts Support Services, 62R Talbot Avenue.
