Delivery Information

To avoid any potential delays with UPS (weather delays, mechanical delays or other unexpected delays), it’s best to process payroll as early as possible to guarantee your payroll package will arrive prior to your check date.

Due to COVID business disruptions, your company’s delivery information may have been altered. We recommend reaching out to Paycor Support to ensure your address on file for Payroll Packages and W-2 Delivery are accessible and correct.


Year-End Processing May Not Apply to New Customers

If you’re new to Paycor and your first check date isn’t until 2021, you won’t process year-end data with Paycor. However, next year, this website will be a great resource to help you prepare and ready yourself for the coming year.

In the meantime, check out our customer training catalog to get familiar with your new solutions!
