Bi-weekly employees: Reminder about split benefits deductions on April 22 paycheck

Beginning in April 2021, UW System employees who are paid biweekly will have most benefits deductions divided evenly over the first two biweekly paychecks of each month.

Most deductions for benefits will be divided evenly between the first two pay periods of each month. Some examples of benefits deductions include:

  • Health Insurance
  • Dental insurance
  • Vision Insurance
  • Life insurance

In months when there are three pay periods, benefits deductions will not be taken from that pay period with the exception of Wisconsin Retirement System, Tax Sheltered Annuity 403(b) and Wisconsin Deferred Compensation 457 contributions.

Split benefits deductions will start on your April 22, 2021 paycheck.
