Payroll Adjustments

Benefit adjustments may appear on an employee’s payslip for a couple of different reasons. Employees who have their benefit premiums deducted out of nine (9) or ten (10) paychecks will typically see these adjustments. These adjustments will commonly appear the first month their insurance begins, January after Open Enrollment, or the last month of employment. Adjustments may be seen on health, dental, vision, or voluntary term life.

Employees with 9 Annual Deductions

Employees who pay for their benefits out of nine paychecks (September – May) will see an adjustment on their January paycheck if there is a premium change. This is a one time adjustment and is calculated based on what the nine (9) annual deduction employee paid in the Fall and what they will pay in the Spring, compared to twelve (12) annual deductions. Please see the following example using current UNI PPO health insurance premiums.
