UBF Arrears Payroll Reminder

Please be reminded that salaried exempt and non-exempt individuals paid by UB Foundation Activities Inc. are now one-week in arrears, and in order to transition to an electronic time and attendance system, must be moved to two-week arrears (or “lagged”) payroll. In order to move to a two-week lag, your pay will be short by one week on September 30th.

If you are currently participating in the Medical and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA), FSA contributions will not be withheld from the September 30, 2020 pay.

If you have any questions or concerns with the upcoming change, please contact Katie D’Amato, UBF Payroll Manager, at 716-645-8735 or

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this transition.
