105 Receiving Pay

Approval: Approved by the President on January 1, 2005

Authority: Board of Governors Policy 1.2.040

Responsibility: Director of Payroll Services

Pay Periods
Employees of UCM are paid for hours worked from the 1st through the 15th on the last day of the month. The hours worked from the 16th through the last day of the month are paid on the 15th of the following month.

Direct Deposit
All employees are required to use direct deposit. New employees of the university enroll for direct deposit by completing a form within seven days of hire. If direct deposit is not in place in time for payroll, the first payroll check will be available for pick up in Payroll Services, ADM 100, by the employee the morning of the pay date.

Payroll Deductions
Federal and state law requires that UCM make certain payroll deductions for applicable taxes from every employee's compensation.

The university must also deduct Social Security and Medicare taxes on earnings up to a specified limit that is called the Social Security “wage base.” UCM matches the amount paid by each employee.

Optional Deductions
Employees that are eligible may enroll for other available deductions by contacting either the Office of Human Resources or other service providers on campus.

Court Directed Deductions
There are a number of types of court orders that require the university to pay an employee's responsibilities through the court before issuing pay to the employee. These include garnishments, court orders for child support, and others.
