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 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.
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.
