Make sure your team gets the right pay schedule
If your department includes faculty, it is important that they get paid on the schedule that’s right for them. It’s up to each faculty member to choose their own pay schedule.
There are two options: working nine months and getting paid nine times (“9 pay 9”) or working nine months and getting paid over 12 months (“9 pay 12”). If no selection is made, the default is 9 pay 9. You can find out more on our website.
Remind all new faculty that they have 30 days from their hire date to choose between 9 pay 9 or 9 pay 12. The deadline for continuing faculty was June 30. You can find the appropriate forms on our website: http://www.cu.edu/employee-services/policies/information-9-pay-12-faculty-election
- Double check academic year faculty salary amounts in HRMS. Make sure any corrections are made before the close of time collection.
- Confirm that your new academic year faculty appointments selected a compensation payment preference (paid over nine months or 12 months). The default is payment over nine months. Employees need to be aware of their selection (or default) to manage their finances effectively.
- Help keep address, phone, email and emergency contact information updated. Employees may update their own addresses and emergency contact by using the self-service features in the employee portal.
- Request that all new employees and employees returning from a break in service provide original W-4 and direct deposit forms.
