Payroll Service Solutions update during Coronavirus Outbreak

First we would like to express our sincerest wishes for the health and safety of you, your employees and loved ones.

Please be aware that there will be no interruption in your service with us as this ban goes into effect. We have made provisions to accommodate the PA governor’s order.

Effective Monday, March 23rd we will be temporarily suspending the pickup of payroll packages at our office. We have several options for you to choose from to get your information to you.

At present, the Federal Reserve has not announced any changes in their daily operations. Unless and until changes are announced, we are fully prepared to meet all existing payroll deadlines. We are pleased to assure you that we remain ready and available to handle your payroll needs.

While we cannot predict how long this emergency will continue, we are prepared to serve you for an extended period. We do not anticipate interruptions in the high level of service you are accustomed to receiving.

The president has authorized the SBA to provide assistance. We would encourage any small business in the effective areas to consider seeking relief if needed. You can apply here.

Can my employees file for unemployment benefits if my business is temporarily closed because of COVID-19? Yes, they may be eligible for benefits.

Can I reduce my employee’s hours because of COVID-19? Yes

Will my unemployment tax rate increase if my employees file for benefits due to COVID-19? No, businesses that are temporarily closed will be granted Relief from Charges and your tax rate will not be increased because of COVID-19 related claims.
