The Centralized Payroll staff is committed to meeting the expectations of State of Iowa employees each pay period to receive a timely and accurate payment. Centralized Payroll processes approximately 520,000 payroll warrants and direct deposits every year for personnel in all branches of State government. Employees in over 70 departments receive over $1.4 billion annually in pay and benefits.
In addition to processing payroll, Centralized Payroll is responsible for the accounting and reporting of three State post-retirement benefit programs. Other duties of Centralized Payroll include the pre-audit and processing of back pay, taxable benefits, Military pay differential, settlement agreements, and supplemental Worker’s Compensation benefits.
Serving state employees is Centralized Payroll’s primary responsibility. However, they also perform quality assurance activities that help ensure integrity within the payroll function, as well as meeting strict time requirements for all payroll related distributions and reports. Wages, salaries, withholdings, State matches, and Federal and State tax payments have various due dates that must be adhered to. Centralized Payroll has a proud tradition of continually meeting all such deadlines.
