Slide 21 Methods for Collecting Overpayments Department arranges for payroll deduction (active employees) Collect the amount overpaid directly from the employee via personal check or money order made payable to JHU/JHHS (active/terminated employees) – the checks need to be sent to payroll for deposit Request PRSS to proceed with attempting to collect salary overpayment by sending a letter to the employee and/or to the collection agency
