All staff members are paid semi-monthly on the 5th and the 20th of the calendar month. Pay received on the 5th of the month includes pay for all work performed the second half of the previous month. Pay received on the 20th of the month is for work performed during the first half of the current month. All staff members are, therefore, paid a half month “in arrears.”
If either the 5th or 20th of the month fall on a weekend or holiday, the staff member will receive their pay on the last work day prior to that day. For example, if the 20th happens to fall on a Sunday, the staff member will receive their pay on Friday the 18th.
If a staff member is on vacation on a payday, they will receive their pay upon their return to work, assuming they are not taking advantage of direct deposit.
YOUR CHURCH offers direct deposit to a staff member’s designated banking institution as well as manual checks as salary payment options. Contact the bookkeeper to select a payment method.
