Lost or Damaged Checks

Lost or Damaged Checks

Students who have a lost paycheck may submit a Lost Check Affidavit and receive a replacement check. 

This requires UM Sign On. Click here using your uniqname and Kerberos password.

In case of a damaged check, please mail the damaged check to University of Michigan Payroll Office at G395 Wolverine Tower-Low Rise, 3003 South State Street, Ann Arbor MI 48109-1279 or fax to (734) 647-3983.  Once received by Payroll, it will take 5 to 7 business days to reissue.   

Note: Reissued paychecks cannot be produced while a scheduled payroll process is running. 

Students with questions about lost financial aid refund checks should contact the Office of Financial Aid at financial.aid@umich.edu or 734-763-6600.  

Note: Work Study payments are paid through Payroll and any lost check requests should go to the Payroll Office and not the Office of Financial Aid.

Direct Deposit

It is strongly encouraged that University of Michigan students enroll in direct deposit using Employee or Student Business in Wolverine Access. Direct deposit is a safe and convenient way for students to receive their paychecks and financial aid payment, and eliminates the chances of loss or damage. 

Students who have elected direct deposit and did not receive a deposit on the scheduled pay date may contact Payroll Customer Service.  

Students expecting a financial aid refund that has not been processed should contact the Office of Financial Aid.
