Payroll & Benefits

The University Payroll & Benefits (UPB) office facilitates accurate, timely payment and benefits enrollment of employees on each of the three universities. UPB manages payroll schedules, earnings, deductions, taxes, and time reporting. UPB also counsels employees on insurance benefit concerns and coordinates the administration of 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 work day prior.

Please note the due date for paperwork to be submitted to Human Resources for each pay period. It is extremely important these due dates are adhered to if an employee is to be paid their full pay check on pay day. Any questions regarding the Payroll Schedules should be referred to University Payroll & Benefits Service Portal.

UPB Customer Service is available to help employees and departments understand and work payroll and benefits processes; responding to thousands of requests for assistance every month. Please visit the University Payroll & Benefits Service Portal if you have any payroll or benefits questions.
