Wow ! Long story ...... short version ? , I was retired a week and my bank acc't posts 3 separate deposited checks Three ?.......I was expecting one. . I call my former employer " Accountant on vacation " Just my luck Finally today......I get to converse over the phone. The 3 checks were " split into 3 checks to lower your tax " Okay....thanks . I questioned the final total of the 3 checks - for my 50 Vacation Days Banked. Turns out.........My TOTAL WAS RIGHT........them wrong. My employer's acc't office shortened my hours worked per day by an hour. Some people work only 7 hrs a day -- I work 8. . I was " shorted " = $1600. But more importantly I informed over + over again - "You must inform my NY State Retirement accountants about the mistake - That $1600 is important to my FINAL MONTHLY retirement check FOR LIFE ! " ( I'm not going to explain all that.....that's the long version ) , Geez ! I was lucky to be vigilant - and there was NO description of the bank deposits for me to view,..... 3 checks ? Electronic Deposit acc't slips show up in the mail about 5 days later - which I don't like about the automated system I can forget ALOT in five days ! , Anyway Morale to the story ......be vigil. " Ah....Grasshopper....no one looks out for you...ahh.....except yourself....end of lesson. "
