Student Weekly checks are held in Somerville for pick up; after a month* they will be mailed out to the Home Address if available. If there is no Home Address listed or if it is an International Address, TSS will hold the check for 90 days (at which point the check becomes 'stale' and needs to be reissued). *This will be two months during winter break.

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. Our checks are issued from a Bank of America account so that is a good option for a location to deposit.
