SBEA Payroll Deductions
Just a friendly reminder to our members on our payroll policy
The payroll deduction policy is: 1 payroll deduction per member, per month, limit of up to $150.00 and all money will be taken out of 1 check. Also, you will not be able to purchase gift cards on payroll deductions. You can purchase them with cash, credit card or debit cards only. It is the responsibility of SBEA to protect your association and with everything happening at Spirit right now feel that we must take this precautionary action. This could change at any moment depending on circumstances at Spirit Aero Systems. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our members and hope this does not last too long.
Members can only do 2 payroll deductions per month.
Each payroll deduction is limited to $300.00.
Member must spend $25.00 to be able to do a payroll deduction. Any deduction from $25.00 – $100.00 will come out in 1 paycheck.
Any amount over $100.00 you may divide into 2 pay checks.
If your account balance goes over $600.00 for any reason your account will be frozen until you have it paid down to $300.00.
If for any reason your account is not paid off in 60 days you will not be allowed to do any more payroll deductions until the full amount is paid in full.
We will ask for email addresses so we may contact the member should we need to notify them of any payroll issues.
If a member does 2 payroll deductions in one week the deductions will be added together and processed as 1 deduction.
If for any reason we cannot collect what is owed to SBEA when a payroll deduction is submitted you will be suspended from doing further payroll deductions until debt is paid in full. If this problem continues your privileges will be reviewed for suspension or payroll deduction privileges will be revoked.
If your payroll deduction is sent to collections you will lose the privilege of doing payroll deductions permanently and your membership is suspended until the debt is paid.
Violations of this policy could cause a member to be suspended from doing payroll deductions or lose the ability to do payroll deductions at all.
SBEA Return Check Policy
Due to the amount of returned checks we have received recently, we thought we would give a little reminder of our check policy.
All returned checks will be charged a $35.00 service fee. (Subject to change)
Stopped payments are the same as any returned check, with a $35.00 service charge.
2 returned checks will result in a 1 year suspension of your check-writing privileges.
After the 4th returned check you will be placed on a no more ever list and will not be allowed to write any more checks to SBEA.
Upon appeal, check-writing privileges may be restored at the discretion of the Board.
If you do not pick up your returned check within 15 days your check writing privileges will be suspended for 6 months.
If returned checks are not picked up within 60 days they will be sent to collections.
If a check is sent to collections you will loose all check privileges forever.
If you have an unpaid returned check you will not be allowed to do a payroll deduction. (Unless you want to pick up the returned check on a payroll deduction.)
SBEA will not take any check that does not have your name and address printed on it or any check that does not have a printed number on it higher than 300.
Members may only write one check a day for cash not to exceed $20.00.
If your checks were lost/stolen, or returned in error, check with manager for details.
Did you lose something the last time you visited SBEA? This past year SBEA has acquired quit a bit of lost items and would love to be able to return them to their rightful owners. We just need for the right owner to come in, describe what the item is that is missing. Please see Rebecca or Pat and they will be glad to see if the lost items are yours.
