Reason: Final Biweekly Pay Date for 2020 and 2021 Pay Schedule
Date: December 11, 2020
Attached is the 2021 Pay Schedule which we share with all agencies to reference the pay period dates, pay dates, payroll certification dates, and HRMS Periods.
Please note it includes important deadlines for submitting documents to the Shared Services Center Payroll and Hire to Retire Service lines for timely processing which you may find useful in the future when you transition to the SSC HR Operations Services. We have also included a recommended keying window for PMIS/BES transactions as entering data outside of this window can cause outages for Payroll Certifications.
The 2020 Biweekly Pay Schedule that was sent last year has one correction that needs to be noted. The 2020 HRMS Bi-weekly Schedule has 27 HRMS Periods listed due to leap year. These periods are used when the pay run id is setup on the pay calendars.
Pay Period 12/4/20 – 12/17/20 (Pay Date 12/31/20) will be considered HRMS Period 001 for the new calendar year 2021.
Example for pay group 040 and agency 261. The Pay run id would be 4026121001
The CIPPS Pay Period Indicator should be zero as indicated on the schedule.
Please contact payroll with any questions and wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
