While the schedule of pay will change, your pay will not decrease. Your pay will be divided up between 26 pay periods instead of 12. The chart below shows the difference in the current schedule and the new schedule, based on a $30,000 salary.
Your paycheck will continue to be deposited in your bank account as usual. There is no need to notify them of the new pay schedule.
Once the pay schedule is provided, you will need to review your monthly expenses and work with all of your lenders to adjust the withdrawal dates. It is never to soon to begin putting back a savings for the transition. Consider using some of your tax refund or longevity money for this purpose.
After the transition period, fluctuating overtime will be paid every two weeks. For example, the pay you receive on Friday will include any fluctuating overtime hours worked in the prior two week period. FOT will only be two weeks behind as opposed to waiting an entire month to receive the pay.
