Effective June 1, 2018, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Employment & Training Administration (ETA) will no longer accept paper checks for many types of incoming funds. ETA has completed an initiative with the U.S. Department of the Treasury to accept electronic payments in lieu of paper checks. Incoming payments including returns and recoveries to DOL will now be made via Pay.gov.
Electronic payments through Pay.gov are deducted directly from your bank account on the payment date. It is reliable, safe and convenient. It provides mutual benefits to the customer and ETA such as timely and convenient payments, reduced process requirements, and mitigating lost or stolen checks in the mail. DOL is eliminating the costs associated with a paper check system. While ETA receives payments in a more timely, convenient and precise manner with reduced processing requirements, you will no longer have to worry about lost or stolen checks.
