Payroll & Benefits

The University Payroll & Benefits (UPB) Services office facilitates accurate, timely payment and benefits enrollment of employees on each of the three universities. The offices also manage payroll schedules, earnings, deductions, taxes, time reporting, counsel employees on insurance benefit concerns and coordinate 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 sixteenth of the month following the service dates of the 16th through the 15th. If the sixteenth 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 UPB Services at: 

  • UIUC: 217-265-6363

  • UIC: 312-996-7200 (Phone Number requires dialing all 10-digits)

  • UIS: 217-206-7144

UPB Customer Service Center is available to help employees and departments understand and work with the payroll and benefits processes; responding to approximately 4,500 requests for assistance every month. Please contact us if you have any payroll or benefits questions.
