Payroll and Benefits

All employees at the University of Illinois System are paid either on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. The U of I System pays bi-weekly employees every other Wednesday approximately 10 days after the pay period end date. The system pays monthly paid employees on the 16th of the month following the service dates of the 16th through the 15th. If the 16th of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, then the pay date is the last workday prior.

Please take note of the deadlines for paperwork submission to Human Resources for each pay period. Adhering to these deadlines is crucial for employees to receive their full paycheck on the scheduled payday.
