MAPP PARTY TIME EXCELLENT? Government House Says Direct Deposit Checks Will Be NSF For Thanksgiving


CHARLOTTE AMALIE – The Virgin Islands government has issued a statement saying that employees who have direct deposit might not be able to cash their paychecks Thanksgiving week, Government House said.

“As a result of the shortened work-week, the Department of Finance has been informed that the posting of the direct deposit file to a few of our local banking partners may be delayed,” Government House said in a prepared statement. “In anticipation, we have taken steps to activate the established contingency plan.”

Gov. Kenneth Mapp’s administration said that if employees really need the money that is owed to them, local banks will honor their paychecks even though there is not enough money in government accounts to cover them.

“Government Employees affected are advised that local banks will honor your Direct Deposit advices, should you require emergency access to your funds,” Mapp said through a Government House spokesperson. “The Department of Finance sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.”
