Summer Prepay Deductions: Summer Employment/Family Status Changes

If you are an employee who had Summer prepay insurance premiums deducted from your spring, 2021 paychecks, who has since had an employment or family status change, you should contact your Human Resources Office regarding impacts to your insurance benefits and deductions.

What are Summer Prepay Deductions?

Summer prepay insurance premiums are deducted to continue insurance coverage through the summer (contract break) months. These deductions are taken in addition to your regular, monthly insurance premium deductions.

Summer prepay deductions were deducted in the spring from paychecks for the following eligible Faculty, Academic Staff, Limited Appointees, Student Assistants, and Employees-in-Training. If you were eligible for these deductions, you would have received an email prior to each deduction with an estimated summer prepay deduction amount.

    • Academic (9-month) employees who will return to UW System employment in the fall of 2021
    • Academic (9-month) employees with a summer service/summer session appointment
    • Academic (non-exempt employees paid biweekly)

What if Your Employment/Family Status Changes Over the Summer?

Employment Status: If your summer or fall 2021 employment status changes after you had summer prepay deductions taken, you may receive deduction refunds. If you will be terminating employment, and will not return in fall 2021, contact your human resources office to determine your employment termination date and insurance coverage end dates.

Family Status: If you will experience any other status change; marriage, adoption, birth, divorce, etc., contact your human resources office regarding the impact to your insurance benefits.

Note: 9-month employees’ regular insurance premium deductions will resume on the September 23, 2021 paycheck.
