Washington County Public Schools employees were affected Friday by a direct deposit payroll issue. Staff members in the WCPS accounting department took action to remedy the problem, contacting M&T Bank, where payroll is posted, and notifying affected employees. M&T officials indicated that the accounts of WCPS employees at the bank would be corrected before the end of the business day, and that M&T was coordinating with other banks to have all affected employees' accounts posted Friday or as soon as possible Monday.

By KERRY LYNN FRALEY Staff Writer Geneva Fellers doesn't like the idea of having her Social Security check deposited directly into her bank account. "I don't want it. I want to know I have the money in my hand before I spend it," said the Martinsburg, W.Va., resident, who said she knows fellow senior citizens who have had bad experiences with direct deposit. "I'm old fashioned. I don't like it at all. " Like it or not, Fellers may have to switch over to direct deposit by Jan. 1, 1999, the deadline Congress set for converting government benefits from paper checks to electronic fund transfers, commonly referred to as direct deposit.

More Marylanders file electronically More Maryland residents are filing both their federal and state income tax returns electronically, tax officials said during a stop in Hagerstown. They're also opting in greater numbers to have their federal refund checks deposited directly into their checking or savings accounts, officials said last week. More than 285,000 of the more than 788,000 federal returns filed in Maryland and the District of Columbia so far this year were filed electronically, said Dominic LaPonzina, chief of communications for the Internal Revenue Service's Delaware-Maryland District.

Effective Aug. 15, the Hagerstown Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3  p.m., a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-to-face service with the visiting public without incurring the cost of overtime, the agency said in an emailed release. “Congress provided Social Security with nearly $1 billion less than the President requested for the budget this fiscal year, which makes it impossible for the agency to provide the amount of overtime needed to handle service to the public as we have in the past,” Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security, said on the Social security website at www.socialsecurity.gov . Most Social Security services do not require a visit to an office, the agency said.

What your teen needs to know about checking accounts Teaching your Child | By Lisa Tedrick Prejean One of the most important things to teach teens about checking accounts seems elementary. "The first thing you need to tell them is just because you have an infinite amount of checks doesn't mean you have an infinite amount of money," says Bob Sill, an independent stockbroker for Dortch Securities in Hagerstown. Guy Grove, who teaches a work study program at North Hagerstown High School, says one of the most common mistakes he sees students make is writing checks for money they don't have.

Paying down debt and building savings need not be a dream. The trick is learning to use what you have wisely. People neglect saving because they don't think they have much to put away. Putting away $10 a month or saving your change every Friday can add up. Skipping one $1 trip to the vending machine every week can save $52. Doing it every day, five days a week, 52 weeks a year, will yield a savings of $260. Even people who say they can't save money usually can save something.

"A caller recently complained about receiving mailed paychecks late or not at all, but also refused to allow wages to be deposited into a direct deposit account. What's that all about? Banks offer direct deposit for free, and the funds are there waiting for you when and if you need them. The complainer could easily solve their own problem by accepting direct deposit. It makes no sense to refuse it. " - Hagerstown "It amazes me that anyone could possibly think that last year's statistics for growth could be used for this year's (school enrollment projections.

CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. Jefferson County Clerk Jennifer Maghan was defending her actions again Thursday after some Jefferson County government employees were paid too much and some people who no longer were employed by the county got paychecks in May, Jefferson County Sheriff Everett "Ed" Boober told the Jefferson County Commission on Thursday. The mistake ended up putting Jefferson County's government payroll $6,406 in debt, forcing the commission to take $6,406 out of its general fund to make up for the shortage.
