Arrearage Payments


KU Payroll can accept arrearage payments online with a credit card or electronic check or by check or money order in our office.  Cash payments are not accepted.

Employees who have arrearage balances due are notified directly by KU Payroll via email and a mailed letter. See the Arrearage Collection Process for more information.


Online Payment:

Online payments for arrearage balances via electronic check or credit card can be made through the KU Payroll Receivable online portal.

Please have the following information ready:

*There is a $5,000.00 limit for each transaction on the portal.  If the balance owed is greater than $5,000.00 you will need to complete multiple transactions.

Check or money order payments can be made by:
