No payment will be made until the required forms have been submitted to the OPL.
If you submitted your paperwork to OPL before Aug 2013, you do not need to do this again.
All referees are paid MONTHLY for all games they worked in the previous month. The payment dates for the 2013-14 Season (including NWCL games) are as follows:
- October 4, 2013
- November 1, 2013
- December 6, 2013
- January 3, 2014
- February 7, 2014
- March 7, 2014
- April 4, 2014
- May 16, 2014
- June 13, 2014
The deadline for submitting this paperwork to be included in the next pay date is the 22nd of each month; if your paperwork is received after the 22nd, your deposits will begin the paydate AFTER the next paydate. There are no exceptions.
The Oregon Premier Council does not issue checks for payment.
There are no pay dates during the months of June, July, August, and September.
Payments are deposited directly into the checking or savings account provided by each referee.
Referees without a checking or savings account can be signed up for VISA debit card. If you would like to sign up with a debit card, you need to contact Angela at the OPL before downloading and filling out your paperwork. Because there is an actual bank issuing the VISA card, due to Patriot Act regulations, you will still need to provide the bank with a copy of your social security card, as well as government approved photo ID. This includes minors.
All referees must complete the Referee Pay Packet (see below) to receive payment, including a valid W9 form; while it seems redundant to submit a W9 to us, as well as any referee association you are associated with, with the size and scope of our operations we are required to have a valid W9 on field for each one of our individual contractors, which means we need to have a W9 for every referee officiating OPL games, whether you are owed $10 or $1000.
You only need to submit this ONE TIME, not each month!
PLEASE BE ADVISED: USS compiles the pay report the Monday prior to each pay date to submit to the league for your payment; at that time, your account in Oregon Soccer Central will show you have been "paid," even though the pay date is not until Friday. So while it may show you have been paid on the Monday, the money does not actually appear in your bank account until Friday.
