Payday for bi-weekly/hourly employees is every other Friday.
Payday for salaried/exempt employees is the first day of every month. If the payday falls on a weekend or University holiday, the payday is the first workday after the weekend or holiday.
Direct deposit of your paycheck is mandatory for all employees. Checks are directly deposited in your specified account on the actual payday. An Authorization Agreement for Automatic Deposit must be completed. Deposit advices are distributed to drop-off points on campus and will be disseminated to employees by the close of business on payday.
Payroll Direct Deposit Form - This form must be sent to Payroll Department. The payroll department is housed with Human Resources in the Schneider Hall Building at 2222 Burt Street. Payroll Fax # 402-280-3113.
Employee Action Form (EAF)
The Employee Action Form (EAF) is the University "official" document to notify Human Resources of an employee action. This form is used for full-time, part-time and temporary employees. If employee is temporary, be sure to indicate the number of hours per week, and assignment end date. The final submission of the form and any supporting documentation should be sent to the HR_Employee_Action_Form inbox.
Human Resources will allow the submission of 10 or more changes/actions on certain items via spreadsheet in order to reduce the number of Employee Action Forms that departments need to process and submit.
Please contact Tom Drzaic, Payroll/HRIS Manager at X2898 or Julie Hill, Senior Payroll Specialist at X4017 with any questions.

Social Security Wage Base 2015 Increase
The Social Security Administration (SSA) announced that the 2015 social security wage base will be $118,500, an increase of $1,500 from 2014. (The SSA Fact Sheet is available here). As in prior years, there is no limit to the wages subject to the Medicare tax; therefore all covered wages are still subject to the 1.45% tax. As in 2014, wages paid in excess of $200,000 in 2015 will be subject to an extra 0.9% Medicare tax that will only be withheld from employees' wages.
The Fica tax rate will be 7.65% for 2015 up to the social security wage base. The maximum social security tax employees and employers will each pay in 2015 is $7,347.
