Single Payroll Project

The Single Payroll project is a UW System-wide initiative to standardize payroll by eliminating the monthly payroll cycle and moving employees currently paid monthly to the biweekly payroll cycle.  Included as part of this project, benefit deductions will be split evenly over the biweekly paychecks.  The transition will occur in July, 2021.

Review UW System's Single Payroll Website for resources, including upcoming schedule of budget workshops, town hall meetings and frequently asked questions and answers.

Paycheck Estimator - this tool is provided to assist employees with financial planning associated with the changeover from a monthly paycheck to a biweekly paycheck.


Split Benefits Deductions

Beginning in April 2021, UW System employees who are paid biweekly will have most benefits deductions divided evenly over the first two biweekly paychecks.  Resources and common questions and answers related to the Split Benefits Deduction project can be found on the UW System website.
