Payroll Glitch? What To Do When The Money Isn't There

GREENSBORO, NC -- Its payday Friday. Is your money where it is supposed to be?f For 10,500 Guilford County School employees the answer may be not yet. A computer glitch kept paychecks from being deposited in the accounts of almost the entire workforce of Guilford County schools. We're talking teachers, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and even Superintendent Mo Green.

The district told us by end of business Friday, workers who have accounts with Bank of America. That's about 1182 and those who bank with SECU about 5600 should see their money in their accounts. What about the other 3700 employees? The district hasn't given us an exact timeline as of yet.

This kind of thing happens to all kinds of businesses. So what do you do if this happens to you?

First, you need to ask your company for a timeline of correcting the problem. Then, make everyone aware of the issue. Call your bank next, stop any automatic payments of bills and ask about waiving any overdraft fees.if this affects car payments, mortgage payments, credit card payments. Call them immediately.give them the expected date of payment, and ask ahead of time to waive any late fees.

Paying a bill late might make you nervous, you might think this will show up on your credit report. Here's the truth: car payments, credit card bills and mortgages aren't considered late by credit report standards until they are past the 30 day window.
