Benefits Deduction Holiday - Biweekly Benefits-Eligible Employees

April 27, 2022 9:30 AM

Starting this year, most benefits deductions are now deducted over 24 pay periods instead of 26 pay periods for non-exempt, benefits-eligible employees who are paid on a biweekly basis.  Benefits deductions are now only taken from the first two paychecks of each month.  This results in a “benefits deduction holiday”, typically twice a calendar year, when three biweekly pay dates fall within the same month. 

Biweekly benefits deduction holidays in 2022 are: 

  • April 29, 2022 
  • September 30, 2022 

On these dates, your take-home pay will likely be higher.  Please note that percentage-based deductions, retirement plan deductions, garnishments, and other mandated deductions such as taxes are always taken from every paycheck.   

We encourage employees to review the List of Deductions excluded on the April 29, 2022 check.
