Contacting the Payroll Division
Due to the Government decision on the management of the health emergency in the education settings, the Department of Education has implemented remote working from home for Department staff. This includes the operation of the school staff payrolls on a remote basis.
The Department will continue to pay salaries and pensions to school staff as normal on a fortnightly basis.
In line with this decision, it is not currently possible to operate telephone lines. Accordingly, school authorities and school staff should email queries to the designated payroll areas below.
If you don't know your school roll number, you can find it using our Find a School application.
