Save for Summer

9-Month Employees: Now is the time to review your Save for Summer Plan before the new fiscal year!


  • Save for Summer program for employees working in a less than twelve-month annual work period. This program allows you to specify a certain amount to be withheld from net pay each monthly payday or 1 and 2 biweekly paydays within a month you work, which allows you to receive a paycheck during the summer month(s) you are not working. The amount withheld from net pay is after all deductions, which include but are not limited to TRS/ORP, FICA, FIT, parking, user fees, garnishments, and withholding orders.
  • An employee may enroll after September 1 each year but will begin their participation with the next available pay period. There are no catch-up provisions for any expired portion of the fiscal year.
