Rewards: How rewards will be received

Rewards earned by the state employee and his or her spouse, if applicable, will be reflected on the state employee's paycheck after the completed activity has been processed. Payroll additions will likely appear on paychecks within 8-12 weeks after the completion of an activity.

Any employee who retires or terminates prior to the paycheck that they would receive the reward on (typically up to 12 weeks) will receive a check in the mail to the address listed in OAKS, for that same pay cycle that they would have received it on. For example, if the normal cycle would have the employee receiving their reward on a Nov. 1 paycheck, but they retire in October, they will receive a check in the mail approximately on Nov. 1 for that reward.

Taxes

Rewards earned by the state employee and his or her spouse, if applicable, are taxable. Taxes are based on the amount of the reward. The taxes for rewards earned by either the employee or spouse will be deducted from the state employee's paycheck. The paycheck will reflect the amount of the rewards minus the taxes.
