New York state workers can expect their paychecks to be delivered on time this week, the state comptroller’s office announced, addressing concerns about delayed direct deposits. Lawmakers in Albany approved a budget extender to ensure state funding through Thursday, amidst ongoing negotiations on the state budget. This move comes as some state employees reported delays in their paycheck deposits on Monday.


Jennifer Freeman, the comptroller’s office communications director, clarified that despite the budget impasse, the payroll files were sent as scheduled, guaranteeing that state workers will see their paychecks by midweek. The timing of direct deposit postings can vary by bank, which may explain the perceived delays for some employees.

As the state Capitol saw minimal activity with lawmakers briefly returning to pass the budget extender, optimism remains high for a resolution on key policy issues. State Senator Liz Krueger expressed confidence in nearing the end of budget negotiations, suggesting the possibility of yet another extender to keep government operations running smoothly.
