Employees are paid bi-weekly. The wvOASIS Payroll Schedule can be found by clicking here.
The direct deposit form can be found by clicking here and then log in to the myApps link. After you are logged in, select the blue Forms box and choose either Direct Deposit Setup or Direct Deposit Change form.
The completed form must be returned to the payroll office (305 Hardway) accompanied by a voided check or a letter from your banking institution on their letterhead with your typed routing and account numbers and be signed by a banking employee.
An employee can change their direct deposit as often as they desire but the employee should not close out any existing bank accounts until the account change is complete.
An employee can change their federal and state withholding as often as they desire but changes must reach payroll office prior to the payroll cutoff date.
If you require assistance creating a myApps account, you may contact the myApps Help Desk at 304-340-4850.
The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) tax is a United States payroll or employment tax imposed by the federal government on both employees and employers to fund Social Security and Medicare. For 2021, the employee's Social Security tax rate is 6.2% on earnings up to $142,800. The employee's Medicare tax rate is 1.45% on all earnings.
A special case in FICA regulations includes exemptions for student workers. Students enrolled at least half-time in a university and working part-time for the same university are exempted from FICA payroll taxes, so long as their relationship with the university is primarily an educational one.
