When and how will payments be made?
The reimbursement will be made on or about Oct. 22 in a separate pay from your regular earnings.
How will I know the amount of my reimbursement?
The reimbursement will appear on your pay statement — accessible through Banner Self-Service — as a separate earnings code labeled “one time bonus.”
Will taxes be withheld?
Yes, based on each employee’s payroll withholding instructions for 2021. The payment is subject to all applicable withholding taxes.
Will the reimbursement be subject to the College’s retirement contribution?
No; the payment is not subject to retirement contributions.
Will insurance premiums, employee retirement contributions, or any other benefit costs be deducted?
Are retirement contributions that were reduced between July 1 , 2020 and March 31, 2021, also being restored?
Will salary increases that would have occurred effective July 1, 2020, be accounted for in this reimbursement?
No. The reimbursement is for reduced salary only. However, employees who received promotions between July 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021, will also receive reimbursement up to the new rate associated with their new position, based on the effective date of their promotion.
Who is eligible?
Those employees who were employed by the College on Oct. 1, 2021, and had their pay reduced due to salary or wage rollbacks between July 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.
