About the Office of Payroll Administration

Welcome to the City of New York's Office of Payroll Administration (OPA), led by Executive Director Neil Matthew.

We manage payroll check, pension check, and direct deposit distributions to all City of New York employees and retirees.

As part of our fiduciary responsibilities, we also fund and reconcile payrolls, distribute payrolls to City agencies, and report wages and tax information to federal, state, and local tax authorities.

The agency also analyzes labor agreements for pay/leave impact, ensures compliance with ordered deductions, collects and remits employee voluntary deductions, administers the City of New York’s commuter benefits program, and provides union services for collection and reporting of member dues and voluntary political contributions in accordance with mayoral executive orders.
