ACD 512: Payroll—Pay Dates and Deductions
To describe pay dates and deductions
Executive Vice President, Treasurer, and Chief Financial Officer
Office of Human Resources
Faculty and academic professionals are paid on a bi-weekly pay schedule. Pay dates are every other Friday except if the pay date falls on a holiday; then payday is on the day before the holiday. Payroll checks are distributed by departments based on the warrant mail code submitted on the Personnel Action form (PAF) for each employee.
Employees may ask to have their payroll checks deposited directly to any financial institution that is a member of the Arizona Clearing House Association. Employees may authorize direct deposit by completing the direct deposit request in My ASU (in the “Paycheck and Payroll Info” part of the menu). Direct deposit funds will be available at 8:00 a.m. on payday, and a payroll stub will be sent to the employee at his or her department.
New employees are required to complete forms for mandatory deductions, such as federal and state withholding, Social Security (FICA), and retirement (TIAA, Optional Retirement Program, or Arizona State Retirement System). Voluntary deductions may be authorized by the employee for health insurance, supplemental life insurance, tax-sheltered annuities, U.S. savings bonds, auto insurance, short-term disability insurance, and United Way charitable contributions.
