If an employee is going to contribute by payroll deduction and the employee gets paid
semi-monthly, from which paycheck will the contribution be deducted?
Employees who are paid semi-monthly will have 1/2 of their designated monthly pledge
to SECC deducted from each paycheck. The pledge year starts on December 1st, so the
first deduction for employees paid semi-monthly will be their paycheck for the pay
period ending December 15th. Employees who are paid monthly will see their deduction
on the January 1st paycheck.
The period for payroll deduction is from December 1 to November 30. There is no overlap
from previous pledge years.
