Louisiana Division of Administration

Important Information About Payroll Deductions

The Office of State Uniform Payroll is responsible for the administration of the rules governing state employee payroll deductions. Products that are authorized through OSUP are for all state employees and all state agencies of the executive branch of state government as defined under R.S. 36:4. The only exception to this is higher education facilities overseen by a governing board. The governing board has the authority to approve additional products or remove any product per the boards' established policies.

Anytime an employee has a change of address or name change, he or she must notify each vendor he or she has a payroll deduction with.

Beginning in 2015, premiums for statewide insurance products eligible for the flexible benefits plan will be taken out of employees' paychecks before tax.

Statewide vendor deductions that are not taken due to an employee being on LWOP, not being due any wages or not being paid enough wages to take the deduction are the employee's responsibility to pay directly to the vendor. Payments made outside of the payroll system are not pre-taxed.
