Payroll office provides more detail on changes to bi-weekly pay – posted Aug. 16, 2017

The long-anticipated State’s conversion to bi-weekly pay is imminent. The last planned bimonthly paycheck is planned for Thursday, August 31, 2017 for the pay period of August 1, 2017 through August 16, 2017.  The first biweekly pay check is planned for Friday, September 15, 2017 for the pay period of August 17, 2017 through September 1, 2017.

  • Last bi-monthly paycheck: Thursday, August 31, 2017
    • Pay period: August 1 – 16, 2017
  • First bi-weekly paycheck: Friday, September 15, 2017
    • Pay period: August 17 – September 1, 2017


Special note for faculty and staff paid over 12 months gross payouts: In order to pay contract amounts during the Fiscal Year of 2018, payouts of 1/24 of annual salary will be continued through the October 13, 2017 paycheck.  Please download the “12 Month Employee Worksheet” to calculate gross pay for each paycheck for the FY2018. Enter your gross pay into cell D1 at the top of the form and the protected spreadsheet will calculate your gross pay amounts for each pay period. (Note: you may need to click on “Enable Editing.”)

Moving to a bi-weekly pay schedule creates two months a year in which employees will earn 3 paychecks.  During the months where 3 paycheck dates occur, one will be designated as a deduction holiday pay date. These pay dates are the first pay date of a three-pay-date month. Only required deductions will be subtracted from the gross pay.  Those deductions are: Required Retirement, Federal and State Withholding Taxes, FICA and Medicare Taxes, Huntington User Fee, Garnishments, Child-Support, Tax Levies, Suggestee Executions and Loan Repayments.  Please note that Car, Telephone and Internet Stipends will not be paid on deduction holidays, but will be paid twice a month.

If you have a specific question or need additional information concerning the bi-weekly conversion, please e-mail them to paychanges@marshall.edu
