Frequently Asked Questions
1. When are paydays?
Pay Schedule -- For time worked between the first of the month and the 15th of the month, payment will be on the 25th of the month. For time worked between the 16th of the month and the end of the month, payment will be on the 10th of the following month. If the 10th or 25th falls on a Saturday, payday will be on Friday. If the 10th or 25th falls on a Sunday, payday will be on Monday.
2. Does Union Public Schools offer direct deposit?
Direct Deposit Form / Spanish Form - Yes, it is a condition of employment. You can choose to have your net check deposited into your savings or checking account at your bank. You can also have a set amount deducted from your check and deposited into your savings or checking account.
You will receive your payroll advice remittance notice via Employee Self Service.
3. Insurance premiums are deducted a month in advance, how will this affect my paycheck?
Insurance coverage for certified employees begins the first of the month following employment. Insurance for support employees begins the first of the month following 60 days of employment. We deduct premiums a month in advance of coverage, so you may be behind a month in premiums when you start. So, it is important to make your selections in a timely manner to avoid being too far behind, financially. If you choose coverage other than single, we will normally spread the premiums out over 2-4 checks for health coverage only.
4. Why are there so many different sections of my pay stub?
All of this information is required by law to be reported to the employee.
There are 3 main sections to your pay stub: Earnings, Deductions and Leave Summary/Tax Information. Within the Pay section there are 2 columns for calendar year–to-date earnings and current earnings. Within the Deductions section there is a section for Employee contributions and a section for Employer Contributions. Within each of these sections there are calendar and current totals. The Leave Summary section lists your current leave balances and the Tax information lists Calendar and current taxable wages as well as tax withholding amounts. Look only at the current column in order to see what affects your current paycheck.
