Stop Payment and Other Payment Changes

There may be times when changes to a payment need to be made after a payment has been issued. Accounts Payable is responsible for processing stop payments, void and reissues, ACH/EFT recalls and ACH/EFT returns.

For checks involving projects with a budget end date

If the budget end date has passed and the project has been closed, you must first contact the budget holder to reopen the chart field prior to submitting your request to stop pay or void and reissue a check after the void.

For checks that have never been cashed

A check that is issued but never delivered (or cashed) by the payee is considered State Policy for Escheatment. Accounts Payable works with the Controller's office to mitigate unclaimed property/escheatment.
