All referees will continue to receive their payments via GOPay, a service offered by GameOfficials. By going with GOPay you will be able to sign up for games and manage your payments on one system with one log-on. GOPay provides referees with the ability to elect a direct deposit to their bank account free of charge or GOPay will mail you a check for the amount earned minus a $3 transaction fee for each check payment.
If you already have a GOPay account through another club (e.g. Mustang), no action is required on your part and the Fremont YSC payments will go into your existing account.
If you do not already have a GOPay account, the following is how you sign up. After logging into Game officials, select the Personal Info menu. Next Select the “My Payments” link which will allow you to view your payments and account balance as well as set up a payment preference to determine when funds are to be transferred.
In the upper right side of the window is a link to GOPay training videos that will help you set up your GOPay account. GOPay can be configured to transfer funds automatically whenever they are received, or when the balance reaches a certain amount, or periodically, and so on. You may also choose to do manual transfers.
Fremont YSC release funds the 15th & 30th of each month during the season.

If you don’t have a W-9 on file, you will see the following status message when GOPay processes your first payment “Admin Hold (No Tax Info On File)”. If you get the ‘Admin Hold’ status message, fill out the W-9 form (see above) and send it the address below.
