What is biweekly pay?
 A biweekly pay cycle consists of 10 working days (2 weeks),
Sunday through Saturday
 Employees receive pay every 2 weeks, on every other
Wednesday
 Pay includes time worked, leave time used, paid overtime
earned, & other “ancillary” pay (shift differential, on-call, etc.)
 Leave usage is reported in current pay period
 26 paychecks per year
Biweekly Pay Cycle Sample
 Paycheck is issued 11 days after the pay period ends (PPE)
 Pay is every other week, NOT twice a (calendar) month
 Actual pay dates will vary month to month
 Most months will have 2 paydays, but some will have 3

How will my pay be calculated?
 Pay will be based on an hourly rate, rather than monthly
 Hourly rate calculation
 Monthly rate divided by 174 (average work hours/month), OR
 Annual rate divided by 2088 (total work hours/year)
 Examples
 $3,000.00 per month ÷ 174 = $17.24 per hour
 $36,000.00 per year ÷ 2088 = $17.24 per hour
How will the pay schedule change
affect my paycheck?
 Payroll deductions will change
 Percent-based deductions will be deducted from every paycheck
 Examples: Taxes, retirement contributions, etc.
 Flat-dollar deductions will be split across 2 biweekly paychecks
 Examples: Insurance premiums, parking, etc.
 For months with 3 pay cycles, the 3rd paycheck (paid the following
month) will have NO flat-dollar deductions (but will still contain
percent-based deductions).
 This paycheck is referred to as a “benefit holiday”
 In 2013 there will be 2 benefit holiday paychecks:
 April 10
 September 11
How do I prepare for the transition?
 Review your personal budget and determine your income
needs based upon the biweekly pay cycle.
 Review and make any changes to automatic payments or
deductions you have scheduled. Adjust your automatic
withdrawal or bill-pay dates to align with your new pay dates.
 Consider adjusting your 403(b) or 457(b) contributions
temporarily during the transition period.
 Use the paycheck calculator at:
