December 2020

Important Payroll Information!

It's good news! Because a pay date falls on January 1, 2021 this year, you will receive the funds in your account on December 31, 2020. Otherwise, you would have had to wait until January 4, 2021 to access this deposit. This means that you will receive 3 pays in December 2020 and 2 pays in January 2021.
