22. Payroll Procedures
Employees of Texas A&M University-Commerce receive payments on the first state working day of the month for the completed previous month's work. Persons beginning work after the payroll is calculated will receive payment on the first bi-weekly payroll.
Employees appointed on a nine-month basis may elect to participate in the extended pay plan that deducts 12.5% or 25% of their net pay from each monthly check and is paid during the summer months. All deductions, including insurance payments for the summer months, are taken during the nine months. Participants must sign the request form each year before September 10.
Employees may choose to have their check direct deposited. An authorization form is available in the Payroll Office and must be completed by the banking institution and the employee. A new employee must provide a signed authorization for selected benefits and authorized deductions as well as direct deposit selection forms.
Each new employee must complete all forms required by Human Resources and Payroll before a paycheck can be processed. To receive another copy of the forms or for information, contact the Office of Human Resources.
