How You Can Learn More

Visit the Single Payroll resources web page for frequently asked questions, budget planning information and the 2021 payroll schedules.

Take the Following Action

  • If you have automatic payments set up (for example, mortgage, car loan, utilities, etc.), review your monthly budget and prepare for biweekly paychecks. You may want to adjust your automatic payments to match your biweekly paycheck amounts.
  • Watch for emails beginning in May that will provide reminders and information on contributions and withholdings that may be impacted by the new biweekly schedule.
