(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Payday came late for some Salt Lake County employees this week and a computer glitch is to blame.

Officials with Colorado-based SunCorp say the company's computer system crashed Sunday but it was back up by Monday. SunCorp distributes money to employee bank accounts for organizations nationwide. And the problem resulted in missed payments to about 22-hundred credit unions across the nation.

The company's president says all the payments were made by Thursday.

Its unknown how many employees the glitch affected in Salt Lake County. The county's personnel office took about 30 calls.
