Once again, the holiday season is upon us, and we would like to take a moment to remind our clients of the Thanksgiving holiday banking and payroll schedule.

Even though our offices will be closed Friday, we will have limited staff available if you need to pick up your payroll.

Thursday, November 23rd
– UPS and FedEx are closed
– Banks are closed
-There will be no banking activity
Southwestern Payroll is closed

*ACH, Wire Services, Direct Deposits, Deliveries, Check Dates and
Processes may need to be changed.*


Friday, November 24th 
Day after Thanksgiving:
– UPS has normal service
– FedEx has limited service
– Banks are open
Southwestern Payroll is closed
There will be no Courier deliveries on this day, but payrolls can be picked up from 9am to 12pm.

*ACH, Wire Services, Direct Deposits, Deliveries, Check Dates and Processes may need to be changed.*

If your check date falls on Thursday, November 23rd, or Friday November 24th, you may need to contact us in order to coordinate your payroll processing for timely direct deposits.

While most customers are set up to automatically have pay dates that fall on Thanksgiving to be moved earlier, no automatic adjustments of check dates will be made for pay dates on Friday November 24th. Therefore, clients who wish to pay on Wednesday November 22nd MUST contact us in advance.

In general, all ACH, Wire, and Direct Deposit requests must have at least two (2) business days to be processed by Southwestern and your banking institution.  Days on which banks are closed are NOT considered business days.  Making adjustments now will ensure smoother processing during this busy time of year.  Please contact your Payroll Specialist or our Support Department with any necessary changes as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, we ask that you do not reply to this email, but contact our support team at 918-388-3320 or to ensure your requests are addressed as soon as possible.
