UW System recently announced benefits deduction and payroll frequency changes for employee paychecks. Benefits deductions will be split evenly between biweekly paychecks for all employees and paycheck frequency will change for employees who are currently paid monthly.
If you are currently paid biweekly, most deductions for benefits such as health, dental, vision, and life insurance will be split evenly over the first two biweekly paychecks each month starting with your April 22, 2021, paycheck. Learn more about how this will affect you and your paycheck on the Split Benefits Deductions resources website.
If you are currently paid monthly, you will be paid on a biweekly schedule beginning in July. Learn more about when these changes to your paycheck will go into effect on the Single Payroll resources website.
