Stopping a Payment

Lost checks

Suppliers must inform the appropriate USC department contact of lost checks and/or payment errors. The department will work with Payment Services to resolve the issue.

Check reissuance

Checks are reissued when they are lost, damaged, or have an incorrect address. A check cannot be reissued to correct information such as payee name or amount; checks with those errors must be cancelled, and a new payment request must be submitted.

Check cancellation

Suppliers in possession of the original check must write the word void across the check and return it to:
