Employee Education Fair – Tuesday, 4/11 – 10:30am – 1:30pm
An education fair will be held at the County Admin Building (500 San Sebastian View, St. Augustine, FL 32084) on April 11, so be sure to save the date! This one stop shop is your opportunity to obtain first-hand information about college degree programs (from associate to masters), financial aid, tuition, admission requirements, schedules and classes from a variety of schools, along with the wealth of educational resources available through the public library. Participants of the education fair will include:

  • Flagler College
  • Nova Southeastern University
  • St. Johns River State College
  • Florida State College at Jacksonville
  • St. Johns County Public Library System (Library cards are free to St. Johns County employees, even if you are not a county resident)

Human Resources Forms & Info
Currently, HR forms are available on the Employee Connection or Department Connection. Later this year, we will be transitioning the majority of forms to a new electronic submission method that provides easy completion and delivery to HR. For example, you could fill out a new W4 for tax withholding and the form would automatically route to payroll for processing.  You will also have access to review forms you have previously completed. Additional information and training opportunities will be provided in the coming months.

How To Get Your Free Annual Credit Reports
The three nationwide credit bureaus — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — have a centralized website, toll-free telephone number, and mailing address, so you can conveniently order your free annual reports every 12 months. These are the three ways to order your reports:

Prescriptions Fills in Oklahoma
Effective 2/23/2023, CVS is no longer able to fill 90-day prescriptions within the state of Oklahoma due to recently finalized state regulations. You can still continue to fill 30-day supplies for both acute and maintenance drugs. Please plan accordingly if you have scheduled an Oklahoman vacation or are covering a dependent who is or will be attending college in Oklahoma.

Tax Withholding
It is a good idea to performan annual review of your tax withholding. The IRS provides a calculator to help you determine if you are withholding the correct amount. If you would like to make a change to your tax withholding; fill out a 2023 W-4 form and return to Payroll via fax 819-3697 or email to Dania Borrero dborrero@stjohnsclerk.com.

2023 BRAVE Summit
Flagler Health+ is pleased to announce that the 3rd annual BRAVE Summit is scheduled on Wednesday, March 29 from 3pm to 7pm at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre. The Summit aims to open a dialogue with teens to address the stigma associated with mental health and encourage teens to learn about how to foster mental wellness. This will be a FREE, live event, accessible to all high school students across Florida. The event is centered around the singular message of breaking down stigma and talking about the issues affecting teens the most. In order to be admitted into the Summit teens must have a ticket and a valid high school ID. REGISTER your high school student!

NEW Direct Deposit Procedure
Effective immediately, Payroll will no longer accept any employee Direct Deposit Request forms from an external email address (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc.). If you need to make a change it must be faxed to 904.819.3697 or sent via a county email AND both options must be followed-up with a verbal employee verification from a county phone. Alternatively, you may drop off the request form in person at the Comptroller’s Office located at the County Courthouse. Please call payroll at 904.819.3658 for any questions about direct deposits or your pay vouchers.
